The rapid climate change in the 20th century became a big challenge for all the world. To take that issue under control the EU aims to become climate neutral by 2050. The European Green Deal is a strategy that should transform the EU into a resource-efficient economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use. But the transition is not always easy and smooth. After the transformation some business fields and countries could be left out in the cold. In 2020, 37,8% of Ukrainian exports went to the EU, what’s why for Ukraine it is essential to keep up with changes and adapt to the new European rules. Otherwise, the policy that is meant for good might create more obstacles on a way to a sound economic development.

On June 11, we invite you to join the discussion where we, together with European and Ukrainain experts, will talk about elaboration and implementation of the Green Deal and its consequences for different sets of stakeholders.
