Join us on 30 November in Brussels to take part in the conversation on how public-private climate partnerships can accelerate the green transition.

When policy makers came together last summer to sign the European Climate Law, it was with the recognition of the need for public and private stakeholders to join forces to reach climate neutrality by 2050. To this end, the development of sector specific roadmaps is an important tool towards reaching climate neutrality in different areas of the economy, while also ensuring a predictable business environment.

A new model for public-private climate action?

Denmark has set a national, legally mandated target of reducing GHG emissions by 70% by 2030. To assist in achieving this goal, Denmark established 14 industry-specific public-private partnerships back in 2019, each of which had to present viable paths for GHG reductions in their sector. The Danish Climate Partnerships are a successful example of how the public and private sectors can work together to supercharge climate action. Other European countries, including Sweden and the Netherlands, have worked to develop similar models for public-private climate action.

Sharing lessons learnt

Now the time has come to reflect on which lessons we can draw from different member state’s experiences with public-private climate action to ensure the fulfilment of the European Climate Law. This conference asks how the private and public sector can put their different capacities into play in the development of roadmaps to accelerate the green transition. The event will also facilitate a discussion about how the two sectors can engage each other and raise the bar for climate action.
