As the need to transition towards a climate neutral economy is gaining momentum with broad support across society, Europe already has to start setting the course for net zero emissions by 2050 through concrete political and private sector action. Achieving a prosperous and climate neutral future will require economy-wide and society-wide changes, addressing emissions from all economic sectors, and the involvement of all stakeholders.
The Summit brings together high level representatives from EU member states, the European institutions, business and experts to reflect on how the EU can achieve a climate neutral European economy by 2050. Three panel sessions will address the growing momentum behind, and benefits associated with, this systemic transformation; how to move towards a competitive, climate neutral industrial model in the EU; and the investments required to achieve this transition.
The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) represents one of the most relevant pieces of legislation for industrial sectors; regulating the core activity, the permit process, best available techniques and binding associated emission levels.
Today, BusinessEurope published an unprecedented warning against a disorderly, no-deal exit of the UK from the European Union.
Finland’s EU presidency and MEPs in the new European Parliament will have to address all relevant health concerns when it comes to drinking water rules if they want to pass the historic first citizen-led EU legislation in the next term, responding to the “Right2Water” citizens’ initiative, signed by 1.6 million people.
The principle behind the new rules on water for human consumption is simple: provide safe and affordable tap water to reduce the number of plastic bottles.
In spring 2019 the European Parliament and Council of the EU reached a provisional agreement on Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation framework programme.

The transition to a Circular Economy offers a unique opportunity to generate innovative, sustainable, resource-efficient and competitive advantages for European businesses and consumers. Circular Economy will help Europe reach its energy and climate targets, which have been agreed by the Member States and remain at the forefront of the green economy.
CEN and CENELEC Members, together with their industry partners, kindly invite you to a one-day stakeholder workshop to address the challenges linked to the circularity of material-use at every phase of the value chain, and to both discuss and identify specific standardization gaps for metal, wood, plastic and concrete circularity.
The corporate renewable Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) market has been developing quickly since 2014 and is set to grow further in Europe in the coming years. Initially concentrated in Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland, which all offer a favourable regulatory environment, PPAs started appearing in Germany, Spain and Poland in 2018. France and Italy are now also looking into it as well.
