- Oct 1, 2020 11:42 am GMT
The European Green Deal (EGD) is a set of policy initiatives by the European Commission with the global aim of making Europe climate neutral in 2050, including an interim reduction of emissions of 55% in 2030 compared with 1990 levels.
Gerard Reid and Laurent Segalen welcome the expertise of Andrew McDowell, who until last August, was Vice President at the European Investment Bank (EIB) and one of the key contributors to the EGD.

So, European Green Deal, or no Deal? Deal!
