The European Green Deal has the ambition to make the EU’s economy sustainable. This is an evermore challenging promise when we are all navigating a global pandemic with an anticipated ending in sight, but still marred with uncertainty. Future generations, born and unborn, are depending on the decisions that we make right now. The responsibility to correct, improve and create new paths for the way we conduct our businesses, organizations and nations lies principally with the decision makers.
The European Union, with all its institutions, and together with the Member States are committing significant resources and are putting forward plans to make post-COVID-19 Europe a greener, more digital, more resilient and better fit for the current and forthcoming challenges continent. A number of important programs are being set up to support this objective: Horizon Europe, Digital Europe, the Recovery Plan for Europe and many national, regional and local initiatives in the same line are among these.
