This meeting intends to avoid looking at the evolution of key EGD files in silos as an overall analysis may facilitate a coherence assessment of the different dossiers.
This meeting is part of a series of events organized by ERCST on the European Green Deal. This workstream aims to bring together policymakers and stakeholders on a regular basis to take stock of current developments in the EGD framework.
Since the publication of the Fit for 55 proposals in July 2021, the legislative process is entering a crucial phase. The co-legislators advanced their positions on many key dossiers and are getting ready to enter the inter-institutional negotiations.
However, geopolitical developments led to modifications of the initial proposals which spilled over to the key EGD files as portrayed in the REPowerEU plan. On the other hand, the voting on some files in the European Parliament – for example on the EU ETS and on inclusion of nuclear energy and gas in the Taxonomy – or the negotiations in the EU Council show the polarisation of views and how complex these discussions are.
This meeting intends to assess those developments outside their silos and whether the EU institutions are succeeding in striking the right balance between the economic, social and climate aspects of a successful and sustainable transition.
