A European Green Deal. Striving to be the first climate-neutral continent.
On Wednesday 11 December, 2019, the European Commission published a Communication document on the European Green Deal (EGD) and a roadmap outlining a list of policy initiatives aimed at making the European Union the first ‘carbon neutral’ economy by 2050.
The key goals are to:
- Cut pollution to protect the health and well-being of citizens from environment-related risks and impacts.
- Develop a growth strategy to help companies become world leaders in clean products and technologies.
Eurits welcomes the European Green Deal and supports the Commission’s aim to ensure cleaner secondary materials and trust in recycled materials.
