This report presents WWF’s analysis and recommendations on why and how Europe1 should shift to sustainable economies, boldly and rapidly.


It is mainly addressed to the EU institutions, notably the Parliament and the Commission as well as the European Council. WWF puts forward this publication with an ambitious double aim: to show why a new economic path towards sustainability is both a necessity and a huge opportunity for Europe, and to present a concrete and ambitious policy roadmap to EU decision-makers.
