Germany: 68 companies call on Govt. to ensure COVID-19 recovery measures are in line with Paris Agreement

Ahead of this week's digital Petersberg Climate Dialogue, an annual ministerial summit organised by the German government in preparation for the UN climate conference, both top German politicians and an alliance of 68 large German and international companies, separately urged the German Government to ensure COVID-19 economic stimulus packages are climate-friendly. 

Chancellor Angela Merkel has also said that climate is on the agenda for the German EU Council presidency in the second half of 2020. Indeed, calls for a green recovery and the European Green Deal to be placed at the heart of the EU’s post COVID-19 recovery plan have been growing in recent weeks, for more information on the Green Recovery Alliance see here.
