Armed forces and the European Green Deal

With the European Green Deal, the EU has set itself the goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050. That includes more robust environmental protection, a sustainable economic order and climate-friendly growth. The aim is to reduce the effects of climate change and environmental risks and to achieve the climate goals set forth in the Paris Agreement. The social and economic changes prompted by the Green Deal will lead to new transformation challenges and security implications for armed forces.
