A green industry is an industry that respects the planetary boundaries (in concrete terms: CO2-neutral and 75% circular use of raw materials by 2040) and a future-proof industry is internationally competitive, creates employment and contributes to broad prosperity. Which green industrial policy (GIP) can make such a green and future-proof industry a reality?

About the Event

The Green European Foundation and Wetenschappelijk Bureau GroenLinks (WBGL) are investigating what policy the Dutch government should pursue to make Dutch industry green and future-proof.

This online expert meeting will bring together a number of academics, experts, policymakers and politicians to exchange ideas on the topic. WBGL will provide a document about green industrial policy which shall be the main subject of the discussion.

The main goals of this expert meeting are 1) to sharpen our proposal for a green industrial policy and 2) offer experts in this field the opportunity to expand, strengthen and sharpen their thinking through an exchange of views.

This event is organised as part of the GEF transnational project Climate Emergency Economy.


Dutch MEP Bas Eickhout and GroenLinks MP Tom van der Lee have both confirmed their participation.
