Dutch Reflection on the Green Deal

The Netherlands welcomes the proposal for a European Green Deal by president-elect Von der Leyen: protecting our planet and shared environment is our generation’s defining task. We welcome the appointment of F rans Timmermans as Executive Vice-President on the European Green Deal, to guide the transition to a climate-neutral, competitive and sustainable economy. We urge the Commission to maintain a strong link between the Green Deal and the industry, research and finance portfolios.
