Beyond Profit: How to Reshape the European Green Deal for People’s Well-Being


In March, at the time of the release of this publication, a few months before the European elections, the European Green Deal is under threat. Powerful lobbies are trying to block progress on climate-related policies, while public support remains insufficient. Despite unanimous agreement on the need for equity, there is doubt about the accessibility and affordability of sustainable solutions in various policy areas, including energy, transport, housing and employment.

This report by EUKI project Local Leaders for the Next Generation evaluates the current EU mechanisms for financing the European Green Deal. It comes to the conclusion that the existing mechanisms lead to poor implementation and prioritise competitiveness through clean technology innovation over a just and inclusive transformation that leaves no one behind.
