Italy’s Green Recovery Strategy and the European Climate Agenda Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch Series

Italy is firmly committed to decarbonizing its economy, with policy measures including phasing out coal by 2025, encouraging home renovations with generous tax breaks and expanding the use of renewables in the electricity, heating, and transport sectors. 

As the largest recipient of Europe’s recovery fund, Rome is expected to step up climate-friendly investments and accelerate overall progress towards the new European target of a -55% net emissions cut by 2030.

This webinar aims to discuss Italy’s energy and climate strategy, from a domestic perspective but also in the context of the European Green Deal negotiations and the upcoming COP26 climate conference, of which Italy is assuming the co-presidency while also chairing the G20.
