Reports & Briefings

The transition to a climate-neutral economy means learning new skills, innovating and implementing new technologies, renewing our infrastructure and cutting dependence on fossil fuels.

It requires not only more investments, but better, transformational investments, and great attention to issues of governance, namely the creation of an enabling regulatory and institutional environment. It will require additional investments in all sectors and areas of society.

This briefing gives an overview of those EU funding sources with a potential to catalyse the transition to climate-neutral economies: it displays the various financing and funding instruments which are sourced and legally based at the EU level. Further on it highlights various opportunities for financing soft-measures, technical assistance and capacity building, needed to create a favourable investment environment.
