The specific objective is to achieve a resource-efficient and climate change resilient economy and a sustainable supply of raw materials, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet’s natural resources. Activities will contribute to increasing European competitiveness and improving wellbeing, whilst assuring environmental integrity and sustainability, keeping average global warming below 2°C and enabling ecosystems and society to adapt to climate change.

Meeting EU and international targets for greenhouse gas emissions and concentrations, and coping with climate change impacts requires the development and deployment of cost-effective technologies, and mitigation and adaptation measures. Eco-innovation will provide valuable new opportunities for growth and jobs. Solutions developed through EU-level action will counter key threats to industrial competitiveness and enable rapid uptake and replication across the Single Market and beyond.
