Den europeiska gröna given

This page is also available in

Den 11 december 2019 lanserade kommissionen den europeiska gröna given för att stärka EU:s åtagande om att ta itu med de klimat- och miljörelaterade utmaningarna, vilket är denna generations viktigaste uppgift. Målet med den europeiska gröna given är att omvandla EU till en modern, resurseffektiv och konkurrenskraftig ekonomi genom att säkerställa att

  • det senast 2050 inte längre ska förekomma några nettoutsläpp av växthusgaser,
  • den ekonomiska tillväxten inte längre är kopplad till ökad resursanvändning,
  • ingen person eller plats lämnas på efterkälken.

För att förverkliga den europeiska gröna given genomför EU ett omfattande paket med initiativ, inklusive politiska förslag och lagstiftningsförslag samt utveckling och modernisering av finansiella instrument.

EESK har efterlyst en ”grön och social giv” och betonat den nära kopplingen mellan den gröna given och social rättvisa. Det är mycket viktigt att alla berörda parter kan göra sig hörda för att man ska kunna främja morgondagens hållbara och konkurrenskraftiga företag i en hälsosam miljö.

I den europeiska gröna given lades stark tonvikt på investeringar och finansiering av den gröna och hållbara omställningen. Den gröna given är Europas livlina ut ur covid-19-pandemin. En tredjedel av investeringarna på 1,8 biljoner euro från återhämtningsplanen NextGenerationEU och EU:s sjuåriga budget finansierar den europeiska gröna given. Denna ökning av finansieringsmöjligheterna syftar till att omvandla krisen till en omdanande möjlighet för Europas framtid.

EESK spelar en avgörande roll i övervakningen av genomförandet av initiativen och åtgärderna inom ramen för den europeiska gröna given. Kommittén utarbetar yttranden och anordnar verksamhet (se sidomenyn till vänster) för att se till att EU-institutionerna beaktar det organiserade civila samhällets synpunkter och att initiativen inom ramen för den gröna given är förenliga med de ekonomiska, sociala och samhälleliga förhållandena på fältet.

Den europeiska gröna givens övergripande och allomfattande karaktär gör att alla EESK-sektioner och CCMI arbetar med den.

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.

The health, economic and social crisis of COVID-19 has intensified the severity of the affordable housing crisis that Member States have been facing for years, particularly for homeless people, overcrowded households, residents of working class neighbourhoods and seasonal workers and immigrants – victims of housing conditions that have directly affected the infection rate in society. Although housing policy remains the competence of the Member States, the shortage of decent and affordable housing in the European Union requires a European action plan on housing that includes a comprehensive set of measures, which are easy for people to understand, to help Member States, regions and cities in Europe to sustainably boost the supply of social and affordable housing and effectively combat homelessness.

This exploratory opinion was requested by the European Parliament with a view to a forthcoming Commission initiative on fair minimum wages. The question of Decent minimum wages across Europe is a complex and sensitive issue. It is important that any EU action is based on accurate analysis and understanding of the situation and sensitivities in the Member States and fully respects the social partners' role and autonomy, as well as the different industrial relations models.
