French EU Presidency

2022 is a crucial year for the success of the EU Green Deal. The EU Commission’s Fit for 55 legislative proposals will implement the EU Green Deal.

The French EU Council presidency has set ambitious priorities for faster change with the declared aim of reaching initial agreements in key dossiers on matters such as reforming the European Emissions Trading Scheme and redesigning European carbon leakage protection by means of a carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM). In conjunction with the German G7 presidency, this represents a unique opportunity to turn Fit for 55 into an international blueprint for the transition to a climate-neutral economy.

Together with the companies in the EU Industry Leaders Group, we are engaging constructively with the agenda set by the French EU Council presidency. Through discussions and events we contribute to this discourse as the voice of progressive German business and industry. As a dialogue platform, bridge builder and trailblazer, we are shaping the process of transformation towards a climate-neutral European economy.
