The ambition bar has been set quite high when the new European Commission President shared her vision of “becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent”. When presenting the lineup of Commissioners in September 2019, Ursula von der Leyen put the ‘Green New Deal’ at the top of the priority list in the new legislative period, highlighting that Vice-President Timmermans will be responsible to rollout this multi-layered strategic plan. Among other actions, Mr. Timmermans will have to propose “the first European Climate Law” within the new Commission’s first 100 days of office paving the way for the bloc’s commitment to go carbon-neutral by 2050.
