Mainstreaming of climate action in the EU budget: Impact of a political objective

11-10-2019

Facilitating the transition to a climate-friendly and resilient economy requires huge investments. The EU has committed to spending 20 % of its 2014-2020 financial resources on climate-related measures. Against the backdrop of the Paris Agreement and of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, such a high-level political objective acquires new salience in the negotiations for the post-2020 EU budget. The European Commission has proposed to raise this objective to 25 % of the EU ...

Facilitating the transition to a climate-friendly and resilient economy requires huge investments. The EU has committed to spending 20 % of its 2014-2020 financial resources on climate-related measures. Against the backdrop of the Paris Agreement and of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, such a high-level political objective acquires new salience in the negotiations for the post-2020 EU budget. The European Commission has proposed to raise this objective to 25 % of the EU budget in the next programming period, while the European Parliament has called for an even more ambitious approach. Tracking and reporting climate-related expenditure pose several challenges. This analysis describes how climate action has been mainstreamed in the EU budget so far, as well as possible developments for the 2021 2027 period. The EU appears on track to almost reach its 20 % objective by 2020. Assessments of the tracking methodology and of its impact have identified both achievements and shortcomings. The creation of a broad political objective is deemed to act as a driver of increased focus on climate considerations across different policies. Recommendations for improvements include the development of a stronger performance framework.

26-09-2019

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees.

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

The overall aim of the European Union-Greenland Partnership Agreement is to boost ties and cooperation between the EU and Greenland, with education and training as one of several key areas of cooperation. As part of the partnership, and taking Greenland's needs into account, the focal point of EU-Greenland financial cooperation is education and training, with a special emphasis on boosting the pre-school and elementary school system, as well as on providing support for vocational education and post-elementary ...

How the EU budget is spent: European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)

03-04-2019

Created after the start of the current multiannual financial framework (MFF), the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) aims to trigger additional investment worth €500 billion in crucial sectors of the EU's economy that suffer from market failures and sub-optimal investment situations. Another major objective is to improve access to finance for European companies, with a special focus on smaller businesses.

Created after the start of the current multiannual financial framework (MFF), the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) aims to trigger additional investment worth €500 billion in crucial sectors of the EU's economy that suffer from market failures and sub-optimal investment situations. Another major objective is to improve access to finance for European companies, with a special focus on smaller businesses. The functioning of EFSI relies on a strategic partnership with the European Investment Bank Group, which can approve and finance investment operations with a higher-risk profile than its usual portfolio, thanks to the guarantee provided by the EU budget under EFSI. For the post-2020 period, the European Commission has proposed an InvestEU Fund that should build on EFSI's results.

Diese EPRS-Studie – die dritte einer jährlich erscheinenden Serie – bietet einen Überblick über die wirtschaftliche und haushaltspolitische Lage, sowohl inner- als auch außerhalb der EU. In ihr werden die wichtigsten Wirtschaftsindikatoren in der Union und dem Euro-Währungsgebiet und ihre Entwicklungstrends über die nächsten zwei Jahre zusammengefasst. Aus den untersuchten Daten geht hervor, dass im Jahr 2018 ein moderates Wachstum von 2,1 % erzielt wurde, wobei für die kommenden Monate mit einer leichten Abschwächung gerechnet wird, da die weltweiten Aussichten schlechter sind als vor einem Jahr. Dessen ungeachtet befindet sich die Arbeitslosigkeit auf ihrem niedrigsten Stand seit Beginn der Krise und wird dank der günstigen Arbeitsmarktbedingungen voraussichtlich noch weiter abnehmen. In der vorliegenden Studie wird der EU-Haushaltsplan für 2019 erläutert, wobei ein Überblick zu den einzelnen Haushaltsrubriken geliefert wird. Insgesamt beläuft sich der EU-Haushalt für 2019 auf 165,8 Mrd. EUR (d. h. circa 1 % des Bruttonationaleinkommens der EU). Als Prioritäten werden im Haushaltsplan die Förderung von Investitionen, Wachstum und Forschung, die Schaffung neuer Arbeitsplätze – insbesondere für junge Menschen – sowie die Bewältigung der Herausforderungen in den Bereichen Migration und Sicherheit aufgeführt. Der weiter gefasste Haushaltsrahmen – der Mehrjährige Finanzrahmen (MFR) – wird in der vorliegenden Studie ebenfalls analysiert, wobei im Laufe des Jahres 2019 maßgebliche Entscheidungen für die Ausgaben im Zeitraum 2021-2027 getroffen werden müssen. Der „Wirtschaftsschwerpunkt“ der diesjährigen Ausgabe bietet einen Überblick zu den KMU und zur KMU-Politik in Europa sowie zu einer Reihe von neueren Initiativen auf EU-Ebene, mit denen gezielt auf diesen Bereich eingegangen wird. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt im EU-Haushalt den KMU, da sie eine zentrale Rolle in der europäischen Wirtschaft und für die Schaffung von Arbeitsplätzen spielen. Die EU muss sich weiterhin intensiv darum bemühen, den Zugang der KMU in Europa zu Finanzierung zu verbessern, da sich die kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen nach wie vor in zu starkem Maße auf Fremdfinanzierung stützen, was sie im Falle eines Abschwungs besonders anfällig macht.

Own resources of the European Union: Reforming the EU's financing system

09-11-2018

The EU budget is financed by the system of own resources and cannot run a deficit. The current system provides sufficient revenue to cover EU expenditure, but has often been criticised as opaque and unfair. The European Parliament, which has little say in the design of the system, has long pushed for its reform, with a view to shifting the focus of budgetary negotiations from geographically pre-allocated expenditure to the policies with the highest European added value. The European Commission is ...

The EU budget is financed by the system of own resources and cannot run a deficit. The current system provides sufficient revenue to cover EU expenditure, but has often been criticised as opaque and unfair. The European Parliament, which has little say in the design of the system, has long pushed for its reform, with a view to shifting the focus of budgetary negotiations from geographically pre-allocated expenditure to the policies with the highest European added value. The European Commission is proposing to modify the financing of the EU budget as of 2021, when the next multiannual financial framework should start. Proposed changes include: the simplification of existing own resources; the introduction of three new own resources linked to EU policies on climate, environment and the single market; the reduction of the share of revenue provided by the GNI-based resource, which is perceived as national contributions; the abolition of the UK rebate (following that country’s withdrawal from the EU); and the phasing-out of corrections currently granted to other five Member States. A special legislative procedure applies to the principal decision, requiring unanimity in the Council. This is considered a major obstacle to reform of the system, which has remained substantially unchanged for 30 years. First edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.
