European Green Deal, Three Years Later
The European Green Deal (EGD) is the single most defining policy initiative of the Von der Leyen Commission. Since its publication in December 2019, it has become the European Union’s (EU) new raison d’être.
The EU Green Deal became one of the EU’s most ambitious policies, aiming at protecting the planet and Europeans from environmental degradations, through a holistic approach to the energy transition, promoting sustainable growth and a just transition. Three years later, the world went through a global pandemic, and Europe in particular found itself in the midst of another storm, which is the war in Ukraine. One can wonder about the place of the Green Deal amidst these uncertain times.
