Webinar summary: What do The Green Deal and Green Stimulus mean for governments and business? Thursday 10 September 2020


The Green New Deal is inspired by US President Roosevelt’s New Deal because his administration unilaterally dismantled the gold standard – the globalised financial system of his day – and stripped Wall Street of its power to dictate economic policy. It became possible to resolve the banking crisis of that time; to end the Great Depression; to raise finance and use fiscal policy to create jobs and income and end inequality.

We are now considering whether a green recovery could be engineered along a similar initiative through a package of environmental, regulatory and fiscal reforms to recover prosperity after the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are grateful to the following speakers who initiated the discussions: 
  • Julian Popov, European Climate Foundation
  • John Roberts, The Atlantic Council
  • David Rusnok, Climate and Company
  • Jeroen Van Hoof, PWC
