The Grassroots View

27. Green dreams and deals: navigating Europe's industrial strategy

Oct. 12, 2023

In this episode of the Grassroots View, the podcast from the European Economic and Social Committee, we dive deep into the Green Deal Industrial Plan, a crucial aspect of the EU's path to a net-zero carbon future. We explore the challenges of decarbonizing energy-hungry industries, Europe's competition with the United States, the importance of securing critical raw materials, and the delicate balance between economic priorities and environmental values. Join our panel of experts: Emanuele Bonini, a Brussels-based journalist for EU News and La Stampa, Sandra Parthie, chair of the Internal Market section at the European Economic and Social Committee, and David Kleimann, a visiting fellow at the think-tank Bruegel. They share insights into the implications of the Green Deal Industrial Plan, Europe's response to global challenges, and the possibility of a European Sovereignty Fund. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
