Circular Economy, Food Systems, and Biodiversity Are Key Focus Areas for the EU Green Deal
Priority vs Progress, Expert Stakeholders, 2021
Stakeholders rated a range of sustainability issues on two dimensions – level of priority and progress made. Two issues – clean energy and climate – are areas where priorities and progress are both viewed as being strong.
Circularity, food systems, and nature are all issues where priorities are high, but where progress is seen to be weak. These areas require more urgent action if the European Green Deal is to be realized, as each represents a fundamental role in the transition toward a more sustainable Europe.
