Court Room

Session as part of the EUI Climate Week

The legislation resulting from the European Green Deal is being finalised. This is a major achievement, but the new context of the war in Ukraine has changed the boundary conditions dramatically, particularly for the EU. In the meantime, the US has adopted its IRA.

What can we expect for the remainder of the decade? How to maintain a solid industrial base on the European continent? Does the EU need a new geopolitical strategy on energy and industry? How should the agenda towards 2040 be shaped in preparing the EU to reach ‘net-zero’ greenhouse gas emissions in 2050? Might some Member State be expected to over-achieve on ‘net-zero’ so that others can continue to emit?

Chair: Jos Delbeke, EIB Climate Chair, EUI School of Transnational Governance
