How can the sustainable finance reboot the European economy and support a fair transition?
In the aftermath of the Covid 19 crisis, the European Union must reconcile economic recovery while maintaining the course towards carbon neutrality in 2050 and allowing a just transition. Multiple tools are and will be deployed: an accommodating ECB policy, an increased European budget, the InvestEU program and the Just Transition Fund, to which national policies are linked. How can we combine recovery with a just transition toward a sustainable economy? What are the economic needs and expectations of businesses? What role can the financial sector play?
