The goal of DecarbEurope is to engage decision-makers in policy and industry with solutions that can, in a cost-effective manner, decarbonize Europe at the scale and speed that is needed to achieve our climate goals.

As an ecosystem of 20 sectors—and growing—the initiative connects technologies, policies, and markets in a cross-sector roadmap towards a low-carbon economy. Partners of DecarbEurope commit themselves to the common values that are driving this transition: decarbonization, cost-effectiveness, circularity,
sector-coupling, and consumer engagement.

Our initiative has not passed unnoticed, witness this quote by Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete: “To create growth and jobs, the EU industry must be at the forefront of the clean energy transition. Accordingly, the Commission welcomes industry-led initiatives that might strengthen industrial links in the overall value chain and integrate non-economic actors such as social partners and consumer organisations.”

“Initiatives like DecarbEurope can help to promote the EU global leadership in clean energy and low-carbon technological solutions.”
