Vienna (Austria), 10 March 2022, 11:00 – 13:15

The “European Green Deal” was adopted by the European Commission in 2019 and – in concert with the regulatory measures of the 2021 “fit for 55” package – constitutes the EU’s strategy to decarbonise the European economy.

The event “A European Green Deal – Investment Needs and Financing Options” takes a critical look at the investment targets and the envisaged financing of the initiative.


Based on a series of studies by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Karl Renner Institute, the following questions will be discussed:

– Are the planned measures of the Green Deal sufficient to achieve the Paris climate goals?
– What is the revenue potential of a European wealth tax to fund climate action?
– Are publicly funded climate infrastructure investment initiatives fiscally sustainable?
