Workshop: “Business for an EU low carbon economy – solutions and policies” (13 May 2019)

The transition towards a carbon neutral Europe will require deep changes in its economy, institutions, politics, social networks and people’s behaviour. The DEEDS workshop on “Business for an EU low carbon economy – solutions and policies” will take place on 13 May 2019 in Brussels to discuss the recommendation of the High-Level Panel of the European Decarbonisation Pathways Initiative.

The second workshop of the DEEDS stakeholder engagement series on “Business for an EU low carbon economy – solutions and policies” was hosted on 13 May 2019 in Brussels.

The workshop on Industry focused on the different Innovations and Solutions needed in order to achieve the long-term decarbonisation of the European Union, especially with a focus on heavy emitting sectors such as steel, cement and other hard-to-abate sectors. Additionally, it discussed the potential of required policies and investments in order to accelerate and scale up the deployment of suitable solutions. This was done in collaboration with stakeholders from policy, academia, companies and civil society.
