A just green transition and a competitive Union: fair and effective taxation for a new era

About

The European Green Deal, aimed at transforming the European Union into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, was recently complemented by the REPowerEU strategy to address the challenges of the Russia-Ukraine War and ensure energy independence from Russia. In this ‘What the Chiefs Say’, we will review and discuss how tax policies, together with market-based and regulatory measures, will shape the EU’s green transition, while ensuring that the transition is socially just and that the EU remains competitive.

null

‘What the Chief Says’ events are exclusive, small, informal and off-the-record roundtable debates that offer our members the exclusive opportunity to engage directly and get to the heart of a specific policy issue with a senior decision-maker from a European institution or government. These events are geared to be in tune with the interest of our members and are strategically linked to emerging trends within the EU sphere. It allows us to focus on the opportunities and identify the possible challenges in the European Commission’s own agenda and provides the possibility to go into greater depth and discuss the ‘nitty gritty’ of policies affecting Europe in the next years and beyond.

This 60-minute discussion will include a 10-minute introduction by Maria Elena Scoppio, Director for Indirect Taxation and Tax Administration at the European Commission Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Unions (DG TAXUD), after which Friends of Europe’s members will have the opportunity to pose comments or questions in an off-the-record exchange on the lessons learnt and way forward for European taxation.
