Den europæiske grønne pagt

This page is also available in:

Den 11. december 2019 lancerede Kommissionen den europæiske grønne pagt, der var en styrkelse af EU's tilsagn om at gøre noget ved de klima- og miljørelaterede udfordringer, som er denne generations helt store opgave. Målet med den europæiske grønne pagt er at omdanne EU til en moderne, ressourceeffektiv og konkurrencedygtig økonomi, der sikrer, at:

  • der ikke er nettoudledning af drivhusgasser i 2050
  • den økonomiske vækst afkobles fra ressourceanvendelsen
  • intet menneske og intet sted lades i stikken.

For at realisere målene i den europæiske grønne pagt gennemfører EU en omfattende pakke af initiativer, herunder politiske og lovgivningsmæssige forslag, og udvikler og moderniserer finansieringsinstrumenterne.

EØSU har efterlyst en "grøn og social pagt", idet det har understreget den tætte forbindelse mellem den grønne pagt og social retfærdighed. Det er vigtigt at høre alle interessenter for at gøde jorden for fremtidens bæredygtige og konkurrencedygtige virksomheder i et sundt miljø.

Den europæiske grønne pagt har et stærkt fokus på investeringer og finansiering af den grønne og bæredygtige omstilling. Den grønne pagt er Europas livslinje ud af covid-19-pandemien. En tredjedel af investeringerne på 1,8 mia. EUR fra genopretningsplanen NextGenerationEU og EU's 7-årige budget finansierer den europæiske grønne pagt. Denne saltvandsindsprøjtning til finansieringsmulighederne skal vende krisen til en mulighed for at forandre Europas fremtid.

EØSU spiller en vigtig rolle i at overvåge gennemførelsen af initiativerne og aktionerne forbundet med den europæiske grønne pagt. EØSU udarbejder udtalelser og arrangerer aktiviteter (se sidemenuen til venstre på denne side) for at sikre, at EU-institutionerne tager det organiserede civilsamfunds synspunkter i betragtning, og at initiativerne knyttet til den grønne pagt er forenelige med de økonomiske, sociale og samfundsmæssige forhold i praksis.

Alle EØSU's sektioner og CCMI beskæftiger sig med den europæiske grønne pagt som følge af dens horisontale og altfavnende karakter.

    Key points

    Global supply chains (GSC) are key and complex in economic activities across the world and in global trade. Economic growth, job creation and entrepreneurship are also contested by evidence of negative implications for working conditions as well as for sustainability in some supply chains.

    The COVID-19 crisis has unveiled the serious downfalls related to highly fragmented and undiversified supply chains. It exposed the vulnerability of workers' health and safety, and it highlighted violations of human rights. Trade will have to play a key role in promoting a sustainable economic recovery. However, stronger instruments need to deliver on a socially and environmentally responsible business, trade and investment agenda.

    GSC need to become more resilient, diversified and responsible, and ambitious actions need to ensure they contribute to a fairer economic and social model, based on sustainability and decent work.

    Securing sustainable access to raw materials, including metals, industrial minerals and construction raw materials, and particularly Critical Raw Materials (CRM), is of high importance for the EU economy. However, the EU is confronted with a number of technological and environmental challenges along the entire production value chain of primary and secondary raw materials.

    This opinion deals with three of four megatrends at the heart of the new Commission priorities: climate change, biodiversity loss and globalisation. While the European Green Deal will result in higher environmental standards with, for instance, stricter climate change targets, it is important that all Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) are not undermining these improvements by contributing to deforestation or biodiversity loss in other countries. As one of the world's largest importer of energy, agricultural goods and raw materials, the EU has contributed to deforestation and biodiversity loss in other countries.
