The 2024 European elections will be a key moment for the future of the European Green Deal and the Union's climate policies. The future Commission and the new European Parliament will be able to continue on this path, ensuring that the 2030 targets needed to avert the most disastrous effects of climate change are met. They will also, and most importantly, be able to make the energy transition socioeconomically sustainable.
The ecological transition is crucial not only for achieving the climate goals contained in the European Green Deal, but also the innovation and industrial competitiveness goals of the Green Deal Industrial Plan. The transition is therefore a prerequisite for growth and thus for debt sustainability.
