Climate risks and debt sustainability

Read our study on the impact climate change has on debt sustainability. It investigates the trade-off between increasing deficit, with a faster climate change reduction, and a more conservative approach, with slower adaption to climate change.

The Tax Fix for a Green and Social Europe

During the live streamed event, three different panels of experts will discuss the need to have a tax shift so that a nurse or a teacher can pay less than polluters and billionaires. What’s the role of the EU in all of this? How can we make sure that there is a fair and sustainable system for the people and the planet?

The Roadmap Towards a Green Tax Fix

We know there can be tax justice in the EU. But for this, we need the EU to be brave. An EU that we can be proud of is an EU that does not surrender to the powers of billionaires and multinationals. It is one that ensures that the people and the planet are at the core of all its decisions, not profit.
