This year’s Annual Sustainable Growth Survey (ASGS) outlines the policy priorities in the coming year and provides guiding principles for implementing them in the 2023 European Semester cycle. This survey takes into account the systemic shocks facing the EU, which are undermining the first signs of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, and sets out strategic guidance. These pursue the EU policy objectives of the green and digital transition and are structured around the four dimensions of competitive sustainability, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. The ASGS 2023 also continues to guide Member States in the implementation of the national Recovery and Resilience Plans (RRPs).

Cet avis supplémentaire sur la stratégie annuelle de croissance durable 2022 tient compte du processus Semestre en cours et fournit des éléments pour le prochain cycle. Cet exercice est particulièrement important cette année. Depuis l'attaque de la Russie contre l'Ukraine, le paysage géopolitique a radicalement changé, et les politiques ont été rapidement adaptées, comme en témoignent les communications sur "RepowerEU" et "Notre modèle de croissance européen". Le CESE attire également l'attention sur les résultats de la conférence sur l'avenir de l'Europe, qui envisage de nouvelles mesures politiques, notamment une convention visant à évaluer la nécessité de modifier le traité. Le semestre, qui subit lui-même un changement systémique, s'est révélé être un cadre crédible pour la coordination des politiques de l'UE pendant la pandémie. Dans le Paquet de printemps, les implications de la guerre en Ukraine sont à nouveau reflétées de manière exhaustive.
This "Chapeau Communication" gives an overview of the different proposals of the 'Fit for 55' package as well as their linkages and explains the toolbox of policy measures chosen in order to attain an overall balance between fairness, emission reductions and competitiveness.
The EESC believes that an economic transition from a model driven by growth to one predicated on sustainability is inevitable. Given the sheer complexity of and the huge challenges posed by this transition, the proposals for new indicators set out in this opinion are only one example of approaches that could be taken when it comes to tools for measuring the social, economic and environmental situation. A concise "Beyond GDP" scoreboard should be designed and incorporated into the European Green Deal scoreboard and the European economic governance process. Indicators that look beyond GDP must be able to do more than merely monitor and measure: they must inform policy development, improve communication and promote target setting.
Trade Policy Review - An Open, Sustainable and Assertive Trade Policy
The Commission aims for more ambitious 2030 emissions reduction targets, both in the EU and internationally. President von der Leyen wants the EU to lead international negotiations to raise the ambition of other major emitters by 2021, and has pledged to put forward a comprehensive, responsible plan to increase the European Union's emissions reduction target for 2030, from 40 % towards 55 %. The plan should ensure a level playing field and stimulate innovation, competitiveness and jobs, based on social, economic and environmental impact assessments.
The 2030 climate plan Communication, adopted on 17th September 2020, sets out the proposed targets, as well as potential implications for the overall regulatory and enabling framework. It describes the overall architecture of policy measures to be put in place to achieve that target.
