The European Green Deal (EGD) is the most profound and far-reaching policy project since the founding of the EU. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen presented the EGD in December 2019. She made clear: this is not only a roadmap of new regulation and of reforming the Single Market. Rather, the road to net zero is equally a roadmap of cross-sectoral ambition and of regional innovation. Von der Leyen likened the European Green Deal project to the Apollo mission in the 1960s, calling the challenge to reach climate neutrality together “Europe’s man to moon moment”.
