CER podcast: The EU's climate action plan for 2030: What's inside the Fit for 55 package?

Last week the European Commission presented its Fit for 55 policy package, setting out its new policies and the reforms it will undertake to meet the EU's 2030 climate goals. These include the reform and expansion of the emissions trading scheme, the creation of a carbon border adjustment mechanism, the revision of renewable energy and energy efficiency directives and the tightening of vehicle emissions standards. In this week's CER podcast, senior research fellow Sam Lowe speaks to our research fellow Elisabetta Cornago, who shares her thoughts on what Fit for 55 could mean for EU and international climate action going forward.
