‘Fit for Innovation’ open letter
With the Fit for 55 package coming in July– and with European Union Member States’ Recovery and Resilience Plans currently being reviewed — the next few weeks are crucial to ensuring the European Green Deal delivers on its ambitious promises and Europe meets its Paris Agreement commitments. Our economic recovery’s success, our 2030 climate objectives and the goal of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050 are all on the line.
With so much at stake in such a compressed time frame, the 14 undersigned organisations urge you in the coming weeks and months to place climate- and energy-related innovation at the centre of the EU’s Fit for 55 legislative proposals. Without a significant focus on scaling and rapidly deploying innovation, we will miss our long-term climate targets and our economic recovery will falter.
In short, Fit for 55 must be Fit for Climate Innovation.
