Join us for the presentation of ‘From Numbers to Insights: How to think about economic-climate modelling’
Can the three biggest economies agree a carbon tax on imports to catalyse climate action globally?
Sovereign debt will be vital in stimulating sustainable investment, but information is lacking on how green public spending actually is.
Plans for spending European Union recovery funds submitted by the four largest EU countries reflect rather different priorities. So far, only Italy is interested in borrowing from the EU.
The EU Green Deal's political scope extends far beyond climate neutrality and the European Union. What geopolitical and human repercussions does it have for its partners?
The level of interest of European citizens in the European Union is increasing, but still lags behind EU economic and policy integration.
What makes one vision more desirable than another is not its neutrality, but whether it can better serve one’s goals in the context of where those goals are being pursued.
What are the red lines, what room is there to manoeuvre, and which elements of the new carbon pricing architecture can be real game changers?
China’s new long-term targets, to reach peak emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, are yet to be matched with a consistent short-term action plan.
Europe is often a ship with multiple captains. The boat moves forward in calm seas, but when the slightest wind puts it off course, it is not easy to steer that boat. It is not so much a question of more Europe rather than less, but of achieving ‘one Europe’. A ‘more-or-less Europe’ is an invitation to go nowhere.
The green transformation will have far-reaching socio-economic implications. Action is needed to ensure domestic and international social equity and fairness.
Rapid emission cuts need a carbon price for the whole economy. This must be introduced in careful stages.
