Europe has the ambitious goal of becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050. The Green Deal and the EU Climate Law are first concrete steps. The current economic challenges are also an opportunity to accelerate decarbonisation and to create a fairer society and a more competitive economy.

The EU Commission is aiming for 55 % reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030 as a milestone on its way to climate neutrality by 2050. It is crucial that the investment decisions made in the next few years put us on the path of being "fit for 55" by the end of this decade.

The current economic challenges and the related investment programmes are also an opportunity to accelerate decarbonisation and to create a fairer society and a more competitive economy.

In 2021, the conference - which attracts over 600 participants from over 60 countries each year - shows how we can make a green recovery happen in practice and how the energy transition can contribute as an investment engine to this deep transformation.

The conference will be held as a hybrid event (conference days in Wels/Austria: 22-24 June)
