How could additional regulation incentivise investment while upholding the integrity of sustainable finance?
A conversation on green recovery with the Polish Minister of Climate and Environment, Michał Kurtyka
This Blueprint examines how the European Union can develop a coherent green industrial policy that will serve the goals of the European Green Deal.
Is the green deal a strategy for growth or simply a reallocation mechanism?
This research identifies existing and potential specialisation in green technologies in European Union regions, and proposes an approach to identify policies that can help to realise this potential.
Creating the conditions for the most promising low-carbon sectors to grow is the most efficient way to enable decarbonisation. As sector potential is regional and associated with regions' current strengths in related technologies, policy should aim to boost the growth potential of low-carbon technologies on a regional level.
Analysing potential recovery spending and green investment through multiple dimensions.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has set a new destination for EU climate policy: a 55% emissions reduction by 2030. This is a good and necessary step on the way to climate neutrality by 2050, but getting there will not be easy, and Europe should prepare for a bumpy road ahead.
Second day of Bruegel Annual Meetings.
In the wake of COVID-19, some economic recovery policies will help green the economy – for example, energy renovation of buildings. But there are limits to the share of stimulus that can be explicitly green. The European Union should therefore also green the fiscal consolidation by setting out the path to much higher carbon prices than today. This would guide investment and provide revenues to help the fiscal consolidation.
