Policies

Policy Vision

The primary policy vision driving SusChem’s thinking and initiatives is of a sustainable low-carbon economy in Europe that can avert or adapt to the impacts of significant climate change and support a dynamic innovation and industrial eco-system. 

Challenge

To make this transition, the European Commission suggests that by 2050, the EU should have cut its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% compared to 1990 levels. The development and deployment of clean sustainable technologies (link to technologies page) will play an essential role in reaching these goal..  Find out more about SusChem’s five main policy directions to help build a low-carbon economy below.
