At the end of 2020, the European Commission decided to reduce European greenhouse gas emissions by 55% until 2030. This increases the urgency to gather information on mobilizable potentials to reduce emissions and to leverage these potentials with adequate policy measures. Against this backdrop, the roundtable brings people from science, business and politics into dialogue on the pressing questions: How can incentives be created to trigger a climate-friendly transformation of emissions-intensive production processes? What role does information about the carbon footprint of products and business models play? Can investors be empowered to invest in sustainable and future-proof business models by providing this information? And what do politicians need to know in order to implement an ambitious European climate policy that avoids carbon leakage and maintains the competitiveness of European companies?
