But for the green recovery to materialize, Member States need to fully align their national strategies with the EU’s 2050 climate neutrality goal, which is not yet guaranteed in the case of Poland. Referring to its strong dependence on coal and current level of socio-economic development, Poland stresses that it can only reach climate neutrality ‘at its own pace’ and with financial support adequate to the scale of challenges.

While the EU is preparing the roll out of new legislation based on the 2050 climate neutrality goal, this Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch aims to discuss ways to overcome Poland’s resistance to Europe’s increased decarbonisation commitments, and how Poland could accelerate its decarbonisation.
