On 11 December 2019, the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen presented the European Green Deal – a plan to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. 

The Green Deal is a new growth strategy to make the EU’s economy sustainable and create sustainable industry and transport, without leaving anyone behind. A European Climate Law will have an aim to turn this political commitment into a legal obligation.

The Green Deal is a step towards a more holistic and integrated approach to address climate and environment-related challenges. It also attempts to mainstream environmental policy by bringing together, and improving, several existing policies, initiatives, and funding programmes dedicated to addressing sustainability and climate change.

The European Green Deal presents a roadmap for making the EU’s economy sustainable by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities across all policy areas and making the transition just and inclusive for all. The European Green Deal aims to boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy and stop climate change, revert biodiversity loss and cut pollution. It outlines investments needed and financing tools available, and explains how to ensure a just and inclusive transition. The European Green Deal covers all sectors of the economy, notably transport, energy, agriculture, buildings, and industries such as steel, cement, ICT, textiles and chemicals.
