Towards fit for 55: making sense of where negotiations stand

The European Parliament and member states have been working feverishly for the past five months to define their positions on the gigantic Fit for 55 package which was released in July by the European Commission. At stake is not only succeeding at making the EU carbon neutral by 2050, but also how different decarbonisation paths will impact business and society. 

Giorgio Corbetta, Senior Associate, Global Counsel was joined by a panel of Brussels insiders who are following closely the negotiations and shaping the policy discussions. They examined what are the key stumbling blocks in developing negotiating positions in both the parliament and the council, how different options could affect the ambition of the overall package, and how different proposals to decarbonise energy, mobility and manufacturing are interlinked. 

The speakers were:

  • Nicola Rega, Director of Energy, CEFIC, The European Chemical Industry Council
  • Elisa Giannelli, Senior Policy Advisor on EU Politics, E3G, Third Generation Environmentalism
  • Dimitri Vergne, Team Leader Sustainability, BEUC, The European Consumer Organisation
