Creating a discussion space to advance the Fit for 55 package.
Fit for 55 is a package of policy proposals on how to meet the EU’s climate target: reducing the greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 per cent by 2030 (as compared to 1990). The overall goal of the Commission is to become climate neutral by 2050 in a fair, holistic, and balanced way. For this to be possible, the economy, political decision makers, and most importantly the civil society need to find common ground on how to implement these “Fit for 55 measures”.
To facilitate the quest for this common ground, the project team brings together representatives of businesses and EU member states with high climate ambition. By doing so, it aims to create an economic and political space for discussion on how to achieve the 55 per cent target by 2030. The Green Growth Partnership (GGP) members plan to host an annual Green Growth Summit on the topic of Fit for 55. These events will examine policy initiatives and identify actions to translate the 2030 target into concrete projects. Furthermore, Webinars with representatives of the Member States, the European institutions, companies, and civil society provide guidance on the implementation of climate action measures. The sum of project activities allows for an intensive exchange to discuss concrete political recommendations and measures and make them available to political decision makers, thus contributing to the EU’s overall climate targets.
