The Green Deal Industrial Plan: putting Europe’s net-zero industry in the lead
Today, the Commission presents a Green Deal Industrial Plan to enhance the competitiveness of Europe’s net-zero industry and support the fast transition to climate neutrality. The Plan aims to provide a more supportive environment for the scaling up of the EU’s manufacturing capacity for the net-zero technologies and products required to meet Europe’s ambitious climate targets.
The Plan builds on previous initiatives and relies on the strengths of the EU Single Market, complementing ongoing efforts under the European Green Deal and REPowerEU. It is based on four pillars: a predictable and simplified regulatory environment, speeding up access to finance, enhancing skills, and open trade for resilient supply chains.
How can the Green Deal Industrial Plan benefit European businesses and society?
The Green Deal Industrial Plan will provide opportunities for businesses of all sizes supplying net-zero products to scale their operations and thrive. It will also benefit the activity of all business by enabling a secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply, and by increasing the availability of the clean tech solutions needed to reduce their environmental footprint.
Communities will benefit from the quality jobs that the clean tech industry provides, while citizens will enjoy the advantages of a cleaner environment and of a more sustainable market economy.
