Commission's industrial strategy targets climate neutrality

The European Commission has outlined a number of industrial initiatives that it hopes will support Europe's transition to a green and digital economy in a new industrial strategy published today.

The document is the latest iteration in a series of EU industrial strategies, most recently by the Juncker commission in 2017. It follows commission president Ursula von der Leyen's stated vision of the European Green Deal as a growth strategy.

The latest plan includes climate neutrality by 2050 as one of its main priorities next to digitisation, while maintaining the EU's global competitiveness. It seeks to support the goals of the green deal, along with the strategy's other objectives, through coordinated action and investment in selected sectors, including the launch of a European Clean Hydrogen Alliance modelled on the EU battery alliance.
