Becoming climate-neutral is one of the greatest challenges and opportunity of our times. On 11 December 2019, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal–a roadmap for making the EU's economy sustainable by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities across all policy areas and making the transition just and inclusive for all.
It provides actions to boost the efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy and stop climate change, revert biodiversity loss and cut pollution. It outlines investments needed and financing tools available and explains how to ensure a just and inclusive transition. It covers all sectors of the economy, notably transport, energy, agriculture, buildings and industries.
The event will present and elaborate on the European Green Deal and explore the opportunities to enhance EU-China collaboration. It will also address the common challenges facing the European Green Deal and China's 14 Five-Year Plan and mid-century strategy.
