In 2020, the political authorities of the European Union approved the Green deal programme proposed by the European Commission. This programme has a goal  to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. A year later was introduced the target of a reduction of 55% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, accelerating the efforts needed to achieve this ambitious goal. 

The Green deal programme also includes a list of actions to protect and restore the environment (fight against pollution, protection of biodiversity, promotion of circular economy etc.). This paper focuses on the amount of “green” investments related to the Green deal programme, on the additional needs as estimated by the European Commission up to 2030 and looks at the different sources of “green” funding.
