Sustainability

Sustainability is more important than ever

The European Commission (2019-2024) has presented the European Green Deal as one of its key political priority of its mandate. The European Green Deal aims to mainstream sustainability in all policy fields with a specific focus on climate-neutrality by 2050, circular economy, sustainable food systems and biodiversity. The Commission claims that economic growth must be decoupled from resource use and therefore, significant changes are required in the way we produce, market, consume and trade.

Contrary to the fear that the COVID-19 pandemic would put pressure on the green agenda of the coming years, the Commission has shown its commitment to accelerate the green transition during the phase of economic recovery, as the investments via the Next Generation EU Recovery Fund and 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) will be closely linked to the European Green Deal, offering ample opportunities, but also challenges for businesses at the EU level.
