To attend the event physically in Brussels, please write to Johannas Schroeten (Stiftung KlimaWirtschaft)



The race to climate neutrality is in full swing. The leading economic blocs across the globe implement wide ranging industrial policies to support and scale cleantech industries having understood their importance to create quality jobs, ensure prosperity and guarantee a higher degree of technological sovereignty.


  • Are the Green Deal Industrial Plan, the Net-Zero Industry Act and the Strategic Technologies for Europe Platform sufficient to keep the EU in the global cleantech race?
  • How can a European green industrial policy combine political will, pragmatic thinking, and readiness for deep-reaching reforms?


A coherent European Union-wide answer to the industrial transformation challenge is essential to truly harness the potential of the European economy and ensure that investments are made where they are the most efficient – not where national subsidies are the most generous.

    I4CE’s recommendations to the Basel Committee on the disclosure of climate-related risks

    After a first step in 2022, the Basel Committee on Banking supervision is finally moving towards regulation for climate-related risks. Founded in 1974, this forum brings together financial supervisors of the G20 countries and establishes the common standards for financial stability. Two years ago, the Committee published a consultative document on the principles of climate […]

    Certification framework: the devil is in the details

    A few days after the conclusion of negotiations on the European Union’s carbon removals certification Framework (CRCF), I4CE helped organise the European Carbon Farming Summit in Valencia, as part of the CREDIBLE project. The high level of stakeholder participation at the summit testifies to the expectations that this new tool will contribute to a better economic valuation of carbon farming practices. The summit raised high hopes for improving and harmonising carbon measurement to certify projects, in particular through remote sensing, in a sector where there is a great deal of uncertainty. While it is vital to improve measurement and monitoring, uncertainty must not be allowed to justify inaction, and the key is to find the right balance between cost and accuracy.

    Fossil fuel phase-out: Development banks need to play a bigger role

    A couple of months ago, COP28 called for the acceleration of efforts “towards the phase-down of unabated coal power”. Limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C requires stopping the construction of new coal power plants, that’s for sure. But it also requires retiring existing plants before the end of their lifetimes, which can be more challenging. Public development banks (PDBs) are well-positioned to help overcome barriers to coal phase-out and support countries with the transition to decarbonised electricity systems. A growing number of these banks are exploring strategies to accelerate the early retirement of coal plants. Yet these efforts may carry risks of unintended adverse impacts.
