Stakeholder conference on the first European Climate Law

Tomorrow, the Commission will hold a High-Level Public Conference on the European Climate Law to provide an opportunity for an open debate with stakeholders before the adoption of the Commission’s proposals next month. The Commission committed in President von der Leyen‘s Political Guidelines to adopt a European Climate Law within 100 days of taking office. The Climate Law will put into legislation the EU’s 2050 climate neutrality commitment, and set the direction of travel for the EU’s climate action, thereby giving predictability for investors, and anchoring the irreversibility of the transformation. The conference will include speeches by Executive Vice-Presidents Frans Timmermans and Valdis Dombrovskis, as well as Ministers, MEPs and civil society. The conference will bring together a broad range of stakeholders, including from business, research and civil society. More information including the full agenda of the conference is available here.
