Description The Green Growth Platform brings together ministers from European governments, businesses and the European Parliament to discuss and debate the economic opportunities and challenges involved in the transition to a low carbon, resilient economy. This notable and influential platform is made up of ministers from 17 governments, members of the EU parliament from across the political spectrum and major businesses from across Europe.
Activities By bringing together business, parliament and government voices, the Green Growth Platform provides an informed business and expert-led debate with useful insights into the real world challenges of a low carbon and resource efficient economy. The platform works primarily through a combination of regular high-level meetings, including private dinners and well attended summits.
One or two success stories achieved Since the platform’s inception, it has hosted numerous high profile debates, provided political momentum and timely policy insights. The platform is acknowledged as a credible forum to explore, promote and pursue the economic and strategic case for an economic transformation in response to climate change. It has discussed such topics as: the development of a new EU climate and energy package, National Energy and Climate plans, EU wide long-term strategies for decarbonisation, the reform of the EU Emissions Trading System, and the development of a new EU energy union, and ensuring compliance with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
