Set of conclusions adopted by the Council of the European Union in December 2020, addressing the twin societal challenge of digital transformation and green transition, and exploring ways to contribute to building the necessary bridges between them.

Further information:

The Council underlines in its conclusions the potential of the twin transition for new green and digital job creation necessary for the economic recovery after the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. It also stresses that the digital transition should be fair and inclusive and should leave no one behind. These conclusions give political guidance to the European Commission with a view to presenting appropriate initiatives to exploit the opportunities offered by digitalisation for environmental protection and climate action, and to limit the negative environmental impacts of digitalisation.

This set of conclusions was formally adopted by the Council of the European Union at a meeting on 17 December 2020.
