Bruegel · European Green Deal beyond the Brussels climate bubble | Green macro policy

Achieving the ambitious European climate targets will require substantially broadening the agenda and the circle of involved actors. The European Green Deal can only be successful when non-EU countries, industry, social partners, central banks, national policymakers, and many other actors support, or at least not obstruct, the transformation.

In this high-level pan-European conference, we brought together key EU think-tanks, national government representatives and European policymakers to discuss the priority green-deal policies that go beyond classic Brussels-based environmental regulations. We reflected on the main outcomes of COP26 in the context of the coherent EU action.

Europe’s sustainable taxonomy is a sideshow

A European climate fund or a green golden rule: not as different as they seem

Spending and borrowing via a non-redistributive EU climate fund or under a well-designed green golden rule would result in similar project implementation and be treated the same in the EU’s fiscal framework.
