2024 is a crucial year for the European Union’s ambition to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Over the past years, the European Union has pushed significant reforms as part of the Green Deal to put the continent on track. As the Green Deal now moves into the phase of implementation, the European economy will have to rapidly transform, impacting businesses, industries and citizens alike. At the same time, Europe is under pressure to react to a dynamic race for clean technology leadership and new markets, which has been forcefully unleashed between the big economic blocs. Climate policy is now a matter of economic competitiveness and geopolitical resilience As we enter a year of critical elections and political inflection points, this event asks the question “What’s next for the European Green Deal?”.  

With our distinguished speakers, State Secretary Sven Giegold and CEO of Wacker Chemie, Dr. Christian Hartel, we will discuss national government and business expectations for the next phase of the European Green Deal: What is needed to make the European Green Deal an economic success and the basis for the EU’s global green leadership? And how can Germany work together with its European partners to ensure the transition to climate neutrality remains a top political priority for the next European Commission? 

The panel discussion will be moderated by Jesse Scott, Adjunct Professor at the Hertie School and Visiting Researcher at the DIW Berlin, and be followed by a 30-minute Q&A with the audience. Sabine Nallinger, Managing Director of Stiftung Klimawirtschaft, and Dr. Johannes Lindner, Co-Director of the Jacques Delors Centre, will deliver the opening remarks.
