Euractiv: Europe’s draft ‘green recovery’ plan

The European Commission’s promised green recovery plan will focus on building renovation, renewables and hydrogen as well as clean mobility and the circular economy, according to a leaked working document obtained by EURACTIV.

The European Commission is busy putting together a plan to help the EU economy recover from the COVID-19 crisis, preparing to pour at least €1 trillion into a broad stimulus programme expected to be presented next week.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen outlined the plan to the European Parliament last week, promising to put the Green Deal at the centre of the EU’s recovery effort.

The plan is scheduled to be released on 27 May and although key details on funding are still lacking, some aspects of the plan are now starting to emerge. Yesterday, EURACTIV got hold of a draft presented as “a working document” related to the green aspects of the recovery plan.

This article from Euractiv focuses on new details of the European Commission's recovery plan for COVID-19, which includes key measures to support and decarbonise transport. You can find out more here.
