New Compass Charts Path to European Green Deal
“A System Change Compass – implementing the European Green Deal in a time of recovery” is co-authored by SYSTEMIQ and The Club of Rome. The report sets out clear policy interventions that can shape a new economic landscape for Europe: ranging from the full potential of a circular economy to the enabling role of finance. Instead of economic sectors, it demonstrates the value of economic ecosystems – integrated, resilient, adaptive, and directed to truly meet our societal needs.
It also identifies over 50 emerging industry “champions” that will drive Europe’s transformation towards a more competitive, resource-efficient economy in line with societal needs. These champions – from mobility-as-a-service to regenerative farming and hydrogen technologies – represent scalable sustainable industries that will form Europe’s economic backbone in a net-zero world.
Echoing President Von der Leyen’s call for a “systemic modernisation across our economy, society and industry” in her State of the Union address, the report is designed to inform conversations and provide a ‘starting kit’ to EU policy stakeholders.
Early drafts have been well received across the EU policy community, and the endorsements from the European Investment Bank, the Corporate Leaders Group Europe, and the European Trade Union Confederation reveal a real excitement about its potential.
