European Green Deal And SMEs

In December 2019, the European Commission published the European Green Deal (EGD), which aims to make Europe climate neutral by 2050 and to make the EU economy sustainable by decoupling economic growth from resource use.

A comprehensive policy design was envisaged at the EGD, in addition to sectoral approaches, such as construction, agriculture and energy. Strategies that support sectoral goals are presented in different policy areas, such as the zero-pollution action plan, the biodiversity strategy, and climate. While
the EGD positions sustainable development goals at the heart of its policy design and action process, the main motivation of its economic policies is sustainability and the well-being of the population.
