Industry and the Green Deal

An industrial strategy for a competitive, green, digital Europe

The main goal is to harness the significant potential in global markets for low-emission technologies, sustainable products and services in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. However, achieving a climate neutral and circular economy requires the full mobilisation of industry. All industrial value chains, including energy-intensive sectors, will have a key role to play.

The new Industrial Strategy for Europe will lead the twin green and digital transitions and become even more competitive globally. It will help industry to reduce their carbon footprint by providing affordable, clean technology solutions and by developing new business models. With the updated Strategy based on the lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic the EU aims to ensure that European industry can lead the accelerated green and digital transitions.

The European Commission adopted a set of proposals to make the EU's climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. More information on Delivering the European Green Deal.
