A State Aid Framework for a Green Recovery


This report by Agora Energiewende and Client Earth was published without any financial contribution from EUKI.
There is widespread acknowledgement that Europe’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic must be green. What is intended – and what this report calls “Green Recovery” – is a design of European and national recovery programmes that not only “do no harm” to the climate and the environment but also positively targets investments in and support to those industries and technologies that contribute to meeting Europe’s pledged decarbonisation objectives.
The report, entails concrete recommendations for further developing the EU Commission’s State aid rules and decision-making practice, in order to ensure that the EU’s internal market becomes a powerful lever to advance EU climate and energy transition objectives.
