Was ist der European Green Deal?

Der Europäische Green Deal ist ein von der Europäischen Kommission vorgestelltes zentrales Projekt und hat das Potential zum Identifikationsprojekt. Ziele sind, bis 2050 die Netto- Treibhausgasemissionen der EU auf null zurückzuführen, eine Kreislaufwirtschaft zu etablieren und wichtige Biodiversitätsziele zu erreichen. Dabei werden ökologische, wirtschaftliche und soziale Fragen zusammen gedacht – und für alle Sektoren der EU-Transformationsprozesse konzipiert. Der Europäische Green Deal bietet den Rahmen für die Lösung von zwei Krisen, die eine schwere Prüfung für alle Menschen, Unternehmen und Regierungen in Europa und weltweit sind: die Corona- und die Klimakrise. Das Corona-Virus macht genauso wie Treibhausgasemissionen nicht an den Ländergrenzen halt. Für Germanwatch sehr relevant sind Maßnahmen in Bezug auf Finanzierung, Energieversorgung, Verkehr, Handel, Industrie sowie Land- und Forstwirtschaft. Durch Diplomatie und internationale Partnerschaften soll der Europäische Green Deal auch global ein geopolitisches Gegengewicht zu gegenläufigen Tendenzen aus den USA und China ermöglichen.

Or is there a substantial likelihood, other issues may squeeze the climate agenda out of the top priorities, governments and businesses take care of? In his article "Germany's Green Transition: Will It Continue?" Oldag Caspar analyses this question for the leading Russian foreign policy think tank Valdai Club.

How the 2021 European Year of Rail can support the European Green Deal and a sustainable recovery

The European Union has set itself the target to become climate neutral by 2050. Rail could play a key role in the future transport system because it is clean, safe and reliable, and it could become a symbol for the European Green Deal. A strengthened European rail system could (1) better connect people and businesses in Europe, (2) reduce transport emissions by creating alternative options to road transport and aviation, and (3) give a green boost to the European economy post-Covid-19.
