Benefits of delivering a Green Deal for Europe

The prospects of unchecked climate change, with the environmental and societal disruption that will undoubtedly follow, are by themselves good reasons to seek ambitious mitigating climate action, nationally as well as globally.
But Europe’s green transformation also holds promises of a better, healthier and more prosperous life for Europeans. If done right, the green transformation offers several concrete benefits to our society.
