As the world emerges from the pandemic and the US rejoins the Paris Agreement, there has never been a better time for leaders to take action on their commitments for growth that is both sustainable and equitable. In Europe, the emphasis is on a growth strategy that will transform the European Union and its neighbours into modern, resource-efficient and competitive economies where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050, economic growth is decoupled from resource use and inclusiveness is a priority.

Increased consumer pressure for truly sustainable solutions and cuts in pollution, combined with the mantra of building back better, is driving the urgency for action – not green wash. Business and policy leaders are focused on how they can boost the efficient use of resources and move to a clean, circular economy, restore biodiversity and cut pollution. They’re also looking at how they can implement new investments and financing tools to achieve results in environmentally friendly technologies; cleaner and cheaper forms of private and public transport; decarbonising the energy sector; promoting energy efficiency in buildings; and working with international partners to improve global environmental standards.
