Launch of the European alliance for a Green Recovery

Launch of the European alliance for a Green Recovery

15 Nisan 2020 - 18:15 - Güncelleme: 15 Nisan 2020 - 18:24

At the initiative of Pascal Canfin, Chair of the Environment Committee at the European
Parliament, 180 political decision-makers, business leaders, trade unions, NGOs, and
think tanks have come together to form a European alliance for a Green Recovery.


In the face of the coronavirus crisis, the biggest challenge Europe has faced in peacetime,
with devastating consequences and a shock to the economy tougher than the 2008 crisis,
Ministers from 11 countries, 79 cross-party MEPs from 17 Member States, 37 CEOs, 28
business associations representing 10 different sectors, trade union confederation
representing members from 90 national trade union organisations and 10 trade union
federations, 7 NGOs and 6 think tanks, have committed to working together to create,
support and implement solutions to prepare our economies for the world of
tomorrow.


This first pan-European call for mobilisation on post-crisis green investment
packages will work to build the recovery and transformation plans which enshrine the
fight against climate change and biodiversity as a key pillar of the economic
strategy.

Sharing the belief that the economic recovery will only come with massive investments to
protect and create jobs and to support all companies, regions and sectors that have
suffered from the economy coming to a sudden halt, the alliance commits to contribute
to the post-crisis investment decisions needed to reboot and reboost our economy.

Covid-19 will not make climate change and nature degradation go away. The fight against
this crisis will not be won without a solid economic response. The alliance commits to
participate in the fight and the victory of these two battles simultaneously, and
by doing so, being stronger together.
