By highlighting the enormity of the challenge to decarbonize our economy and tackle our environmental crisis, COVID-19 has focused attention on the urgent need for a green recovery. Unprecedented EU funding will fuel it, while a new 2030 emissions target will take real and rapid changes to the way we live to achieve.
A recovery that reboots old technologies will not succeed. Companies, financial institutions, local governments and policymakers must truly transform. They must #BuildForwardBetter and urgently roll out clear transition plans for a new, net zero emissions era.
Join the CDP Europe Awards 2021 as we gather the highest level business and political decision-makers to challenge them on their plans to lead a truly green recovery towards the EU's 2050 climate neutrality goal.
For the first time, the full CDP Europe Awards dialogue is produced by Euronews, Europe's most-watched news channel. It is free to join and open to all with registration.
