In 2006, Jeffrey Sachs wrote that sustainability had replaced the Cold War as the dominant theme of global politics.

The research paper concludes with recommendations on policy-making in ...

Linking national spending on the environment with the effects it has on the environmental performance of EU Member States allows for a better assessment of the effective quality of budgetary interventions.

We estimate that this transfer towards a more efficient level of governance would allow ...

The amount of clothes bought per person in the European Union (EU) has increased by 40 % in just a few decades, driven by a fall in prices and the increased speed with which fashion is delivered to consumers.

The production of raw materials, spinning them into fibres, weaving fabrics and dyeing require enormous amounts of ...

It enables the Commission to allow Member States to design and implement national investments targeting important market failures or societal challenges that could not otherwise be addressed. In November 2021, the Commission adopted a communication updating a 2014 communication that established the first set of guidance to be used for the ...
