  Sustainable Prosperity for Europe  

The Sustainable Prosperity for Europe (SPfEProgramme explores the foundations and drivers for achieving an environmentally sustainable and competitive European economy. While the climate crisis is a complex challenge to be addressed, non-action is not an option. Prospering within the planetary boundaries requires rethinking the existing ‘take-make-dispose’ economic model, reducing pollution and being smarter with the resources we have. The Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Agenda provide a direction for travel, and the SPfE Programme engages in a debate on the needed measures to achieve a fair transition to an environmentally sustainable economy and society. It focuses on areas where working together across the EU can bring significant benefits to the member states, citizens and businesses, and ensure sustainable prosperity within the limits of this planet.
