The European Green Deal (EGD), launched by the European Commission in December 2019, is a major policy package addressing climate change and aiming at a "just and inclusive" transition. Several shortcomings can be identified in the EGD: it lacks a vision of a just, post-carbon economy for Europe; available resources are inadequate to reach stated objectives; and implementation tools are limited. We argue that making Europe's production systems carbon neutral would require a broader range of "green" industrial policies that need to jointly address environmental sustainability, structural change, and fairness of economic outcomes in Europe.

Abstract

The European Green Deal (EGD), launched by the European Commission in December 2019, is a major policy package addressing climate change and aiming at a "just and inclusive" transition. Several shortcomings can be identified in the EGD: it lacks a vision of a just, post-carbon economy for Europe; available resources are inadequate to reach stated objectives; and implementation tools are limited. We argue that making Europe's production systems carbon neutral would require a broader range of "green" industrial policies that need to jointly address environmental sustainability, structural change, and fairness of economic outcomes in Europe.
