The European Commission announced its Green Deal in December 2019, to be followed by the introduction of the first "European Climate Law" by March 2020. Our ambition: to be the world's first climate neutral continent by 2050. Key to the Green Deal will be the EU’s circular economy action plan to be announced in the spring of 2020. The circular economy plan will include a 'sustainable products' policy to support the circular design of all products. Also key is the Green Deal Investment Plan to attract at least one trillion euros (CAD 1.46 trillion) worth of public and private investment over the next decade.
