This year, the Green Growth Partnership is organising a series of events on ‘Greening the economic recovery in line with climate neutrality - From commitments to action’. The events will be held during the German Presidency of the European Council and gather business and political support for an economic recovery that is consistent with the achievement of ambitious climate objectives.

Join us for the first of these events, which will take place on Thursday 16 July 2020.

Organised in partnership with the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), this virtual event will be an opportunity to launch key priorities of the German Presidency, with a focus on climate. Panellists will exchange insights on how to combine economic recovery and climate objectives, including climate neutrality by 2050 and an increased 2030 target, in a way that enables a successful transition towards a climate neutral, resilient and prosperous European economy. The event will take place one day prior to the European Council meeting which will discuss the EU’s economic recovery plan.
