This year’s Annual Sustainable Growth Survey outlines the policy priorities in the coming year and provides guiding principles for implementing them in the 2022 European Semester cycle. The European Semester provides a well-established framework for coordinating the economic and employment policies of the Member States and will continue to play this role in the recovery phase and in advancing on the twin transitions. Like in previous years, the policy priorities will be structured around the four dimensions of competitive sustainability and in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. The Communication also sketches out the main characteristics of the 2022 European Semester cycle and explains the main changes compared to previous cycles, taking into account the need to adapt to the processes under the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

The EESC strongly supports the goal of redirecting investments in such a way that they contribute to the EU's transition to a sustainable economy but calls for the social partners and civil society to be brought better on board in the design and implementation of sustainable finance. The EU green bond standard has the potential to yield significant economic benefits for both issuers and investors alike and help the green transition.

This opinion will provide the civil society perspective on the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism. The main purposes of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) would be to discourage EU businesses from moving their production to countries with less ambitious climate change policies (carbon leakage) and to encourage a global move towards net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in line with the Paris Agreement.
