EU budget can unlock a low-carbon Europe

The EU budget has a crucial role to play in unlocking barriers to climate related investment and providing renewed political and business confidence. IEEP’s David Baldock and Camilla Adelle have contributed to the report, Unlocking a low-carbon Europe: perspectives on EU budget reform, published by Green Alliance on 3 February 2010.

An EU budget more focussed on the climate challenge would help support Europe’s transition to a low-carbon economy throughout the new decade. The report is a new collection of viewpoints on the subject from diverse European think tanks, businesses, NGOs and social organisations.
