Information campaign on the "European Green Deal"

I would like to draw your attention to one more of the big topics of the EU in recent years. Europe's Green Deal refers to a broad European Union (EU) plan to make the EU the first climate-zero continent by 2050. This ambitious strategic effort aims to change the way the European economy operates and make the economic growth, social justice and environmental protection mutually compatible. Some important aspects of the Green Deal include:

  • Achieving zero emissions

  • Support of clean technologies

  • Circular economy

  • Justice and social aspect

  • Green Deal for Justice

  • Green investments

This approach covers various fields, from energy and industry to transport and education, with the aim of integrated and coordinated action. Europe's Green Deal is a strategy that unites the efforts of the EU and its members in the direction of sustainable economic development.

The Green Deal Industrial Plan is a key component of the EU's wider Green Deal strategy. The Industrial Plan, announced in May 2021, aims to accelerate the transition to a green economy by supporting EU industrial sectors in their efforts to become more sustainable and competitive through modernization and digitalisation as well as through the development and deployment of innovative technologies and sustainable production processes. The plan includes measures to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), strengthen the EU's strategic autonomy in critical sectors and promote a level playing field in global trade.

In March 2020, the European Commission published its strategic document "The Roadmap for the Green Deal", which summarizes the main actions and objectives to be taken in different areas. This document gives an overview of the EU's ambitions and plans to achieve climate zero emissions by 2050.

In the context of Europe's Green Deal, decarbonisation is a key principle and objective, which refers to the substantial reduction or even complete elimination of greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activity, especially from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas.

The Green Deal seeks to ensure social justice by incorporating social criteria and tools into various initiatives. The Just Transition principle focuses on providing support for workers and communities that could be affected by changes in the economy related to the reduction of fossil fuel use and the transition to clean technologies. This approach aims to prevent social and economic shocks in these areas. The Green Deal promotes the creation of new jobs in areas such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, circular economy and green technologies. This includes training for new skills and support for communities that are more vulnerable to change.

Europe's Green Deal has global aspects and linking it to the rest of the world is an important component of the European Union's strategy to address the challenges of climate change and sustainable economic development. It affirms the role of the European Union as a leader in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This commitment creates an opportunity for the EU to influence the global climate arena and encourage other countries to follow a similar path. Emphasis is placed on cooperation in the field of science and innovation, which includes the exchange of knowledge and technology with other countries. This approach supports global participation in the development of clean and sustainable technologies.

Linking the Green Deal to the global world emphasizes the need for joint action and cooperation between different countries to achieve the common goal of a sustainable future.
