What does EU climate policy need to look like to achieve the transformation to a net zero emissions economy by 2050? Tune into our podcast and learn about the four essential cross-cutting challenges on this path: fostering breakthrough INNOVATION, shifting INVESTMENT & finance, rolling out the INFRASTRUCTURE for a climate-neutral and resilient economy and, INTEGRATION of solutions across sectors. These four “I”s can make or break our chances to becoming climate neutral. Experts from different backgrounds will join in conversation to explore each of them and their relevance for EU policymaking.

The podcast is part of the 4i-TRACTION project, financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme funded under grant agreement No. 1011003884.

    Integrating for Impact: Coordination and Cohesion in EU Climate Policy

    Integrating for Impact: Coordination and Cohesion in EU Climate Policy

    The cross-cutting nature of climate change requires that climate policies are aligned across all sectors and move away from incremental policymaking practices - often characterized by 'silo' thinking. This ensures coherent consideration of climate policy objectives and targets, fostering synergies and complementarities among policies. To achieve this so-called mainstreaming, all branches of government and institutions must coordinate at all stages of the policymaking process.

    How do EU legal and governance frameworks contribute to climate policy integration?

    Regulatory Leverage: How Can the EU Foster a Green Investment Shift?

    Regulatory Leverage: How Can the EU Foster a Green Investment Shift?

    The investment challenge is fundamental to mobilizing financial resources for the transformation toward climate neutrality. Every investment decision today locks us into a specific future - we must be careful about directing investment flows meaningfully. Maximizing green investments and providing predictability for economic actors need coordination at EU level and policies effectively promoting the transformation towards climate neutrality. Key policies should consider, among others, a long-term climate investment plan, securing adequate public funding and making sure the banking sector is implementing the existing regulations properly.

    What policies do we need to promote climate neutral investment in support of the EU’s climate ambition?

    The EU’s Climate Neutrality Challenge: Can Infrastructure be the Game Changer?

    The EU’s Climate Neutrality Challenge: Can Infrastructure be the Game Changer?

    Infrastructure is key to the transition from a society based on fossil fuels to one that is powered by renewable energy. While most of the infrastructure planning and decision-making is done at national level, the EU has a significant coordinating role, especially in the rollout of cross-border infrastructure. Stronger EU-level governance can thus lead to a more resilient and cost-efficient climate neutral energy system, which is needed to reach climate neutrality by 2050.

    What policies do we need to promote climate neutral infrastructure in support of the EU’s climate ambition?

    What is the role of innovation in making the EU climate neutral?

    What is the role of innovation in making the EU climate neutral?

    Innovation plays a key role in steering the EU towards climate neutrality by 2050. Both the public and private sectors need innovation to develop and adopt cutting-edge technologies, transformative climate policies and novel business practices tailored for a climate-neutral society. Today, some innovations are market-ready, such as solar power, but many others still need to be invented and scaled up to reach climate neutrality by 2050.

    What is transformative climate policy?

    What is transformative climate policy?

    As concern for our planet's health continues to rise, climate policy has taken center stage in political discussions worldwide. While EU member states have made strides towards implementing comprehensive climate policies, we still have a long way to go in reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, progress towards climate neutrality has been slow and marked by easy wins that do not require significant change.

    How must policymakers design transformative EU climate policy to reach climate neutrality in the next decade?
