The climate-neutral economy of tomorrow needs a reliable transatlantic partnership

(13.04.2021)

With an international climate summit on April 22, US President Biden wants to showcase the commitment and ambition with which the US has returned to the Paris Agreement. We say: Welcome back, friends!

The transition to the climate-neutral economy of tomorrow needs reliable partners. And no partnership worldwide can drive the necessary economic transformations forward as decisively as the transatlantic collaboration between Europe and the USA.

We Europeans have taken the first step with the EU Green Deal. What we need now is a transatlantic climate alliance in which innovations are driven forward, investments are mobilized and international competitiveness is strengthened.

Therefore, Stiftung 2° supports the below open letter from 100 decision-makers from politics and business calling for a new transatlantic cooperation for climate action.

The letter goes back to an initiative of the French MEP Pascal Canfin and has been published on April 13 in Die Welt, El Pais, Les Echos, Le Soir, Gazeta Wyborcza and Politico (download here).

Stiftung 2° invites interested partners to get together at the occasion of the American climate summit and in the run-up to COP26 to significantly strengthen transatlantic climate cooperation.
