Co-president of The Club of Rome
The European Green Deal and the state of climate action in Europe
In conversation with Diana Fox Carney, Sandrine will talk about Europe’s climate ambitions and the tools and mechanisms that it will employ to achieve them (including the EU Green Deal and the EU emissions trading system). What needs to happen to get us to net zero greenhouse gases by 2050 and how can the EU play a leadership role in the transition?
