Recommendations to achieve a sustainable Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020
Briefing | 23 January 2012
The 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (EU budget) will be a decisive tool for Europe to demonstrate that it can achieve economic and social prosperity by committing to a decarbonised, resource and energy-efficient and socially just economy. This briefing recommends to further strengthen the European Commission’s budget proposal by shifting allocations and spending priorities to sectors of the green economy, eventually helping to create more jobs and future proof green markets.
In particular, the briefing includes proposals to ensure the EU reaches the 2020 climate and energy objectives and the lack of elements to achieve the 2020 biodiversity target.
