A State Aid Framework for a Green Recovery: Mainstreaming climate protection in EU State aid law

There is widespread acknowledgement that Europe’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic must be green. What is intended – and what this report calls 'Green Recovery' – is a design of European and national recovery programmes that not only 'do no harm' to the climate and the environment but also positively target investments in and support to those industries and technologies that contribute to meeting Europe’s pledged decarbonisation objectives.
