Green Growth Summit 2022: ‘Climate and energy at the crossroads – how to deliver climate action and secure energy for Europeans and the world?’

The Summit will bring together Environment, Climate and Energy Ministers, Members of the European Parliament and business leaders, to discuss how to ensure an ambitious outcome of the negotiations and implementation of the ‘Fit for 55 Package’, in parallel to the REPowerEU Plan, and reflect on how the EU could show international leadership on climate action by accelerating the global energy transition. The event will also mark the CLG Europe’s flagship report launch on ‘From ambition to delivery: How can policy enable and encourage more sustainable choices by business and households in the EU?’.
