Financing the EU Green Deal - Policy Breakfast Series #2

Webinar, Wednesday 23 June 2021, 08:45 - 09:30 CET

A vast amount of money will be needed to finance the transition to a climate-neutral and circular economy whilst investment in polluting infrastructure will have to cease.

What ‘rules of the game’ need to change in order to redirect private capital flows in support of our long-term societal objectives? What is the role of central banks and other supervisory authorities in managing the transition? How should public revenues and expenditures be revisited to achieve a real fair society?

These are in essence the questions that FEPS would like to address in this Policy Breakfast series on Financing the EU Green Deal. Each meeting will consist of a policy presentation, followed by a discussion with experts and policymakers; to which you are invited to contribute.

Rafael Wildauer and Stuart Leitch, University of Greenwich presented the Policy Study “A European wealth tax for a fair and green recovery” in partnership with the Renner Institut. They investigated the potential of a European net wealth tax to raise substantial revenues while supporting the economy and the consensus on climate action.

Jos Delbeke, Professor at KU Leuven and at the EUI School of Transnational Governance and former Director-General of the European Commission's DG Climate Action gave a presentation on the carbon border adjustment mechanism and the ETS reform. A discussion with MEP Aurore Lalucq and a Q&A followed.
