The European Green Deal is the Union’s new growth strategy for the next decade, aiming to create new businesses and jobs, and to trigger more investment. It is designed to build a European market which will allow Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. It is fundamental that reaching this goal will not exclude anyone, guaranteeing a socially fair and just transition for all. During this webinar we will hear how the European Union wants to guide the transition towards climate-neutrality while safeguarding social inclusion, and which financial mechanisms will encourage this. Moreover, we will uncover which role the investors for impact can play in the Just Transition. Finally, we will learn why and how the European Green Deal, which puts both people and planet at its core, should also be the European long-term answer to the ongoing Corona crisis.
