European tax systems today are neither fair nor green. But a new political grand bargain on tax is now possible that can help boost jobs, fight inequalities and bring Europe’s economy back inside our planetary boundaries. Here’s how.
IEEP is looking for an expert on UK environmental policy, with its national and four country dimensions, who can show leadership, oriented towards business development and impact, enthusiastic about building partnerships and comfortable working as a part of dynamic small team.
IEEP has a full-time vacancy for a head of the institute's CAP and food policy area. The successful candidate will have expertise on the CAP, its past and ongoing reforms, and a good understanding of the EU food system, the Farm to Fork strategy and other existing and upcoming pieces of legislation impacting our food system.
IEEP is looking for a new intern to work closely with the Executive Director and the External Impact Team and conduct research on a number of topics related to European environmental policy. The internship is an excellent chance for hands-on learning within a small and dynamic independent institute.
Bank deposits increased rapidly in the EU in 2020. This is linked with the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. How can public institutions help align consumption decisions to the EU’s climate ambitions?
Reducing all emissions from cars and vans must be a top priority of EU policy in order to achieve the goals of the European Green Deal. IEEP has submitted a response to the Commission’s public consultation on CO2 emission standards for cars and vans in this context.
A breakfast briefing to launch the Think2030 paper ‘A low-carbon and circular industry for Europe’, co-written by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) and the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP).
A window of opportunity. That is a good description of the coming months of global environmental policy, with the US re-joining the Paris Agreement and with the postponed climate and biodiversity Conferences of Parties (COPs) on the agenda.
Under the European Green Deal, the EU has pledged to minimise its contribution to deforestation and forest degradation around the world and to promote the consumption of goods from deforestation-free supply chains. But what will that mean in practice?
Pick just about any measure of climate policy, and the EU leads the US. It has a higher share of renewable energy in electricity generation, better energy efficiency, and per capita emissions less than half those of the US. But on cutting emissions from transport, Europe could soon find itself playing catch-up.
The US is back in the Paris Agreement. Now the big question is what 2030 emission reduction target President Biden will bring to the table ahead of COP26 in Glasgow. His election campaign pledge to target net-zero emissions by 2050 is encouraging, but now the world wants to know about US near-term action.
IEEP is pleased to invite you to a high-level European Commission event with Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius and a distinguished panel to discuss how green taxation can help build fairer, more resilient economies.
