Kaynak belirtilmedi

The world that is shared by all human beings, has struggled with climate change and environmental degradation. It can be clearly said that almost all countries tried to combat this fascinating problem. In this way, European Union has stepped in to solve this problem. On 11 December 2019, European Commission presented to European Green Deal. It is a considerably new phenomenon in the structure of the European Union as a long-term sustainable environmental deal. It shows how to transform the European Union’s way of living and working, of producing and consuming so that all members live healthier and make our businesses innovative. One of the main objectives is that it may help Europan Union’s economy to be a global leader by moving fast and first. In addition, protecting Europe’s natural heritage, biodiversity, forests, and seas of the continent is a significant aim. By demonstrating the other countries of the world how to be sustainable and competitive about climate change and environmental problems, the EU may convince others to move with the union. 

Europen Green Deal Long-Term Planning

In this context, the European Union has both long-term and determined planning, first in 2030 and then in 2050. They have shown how seriously they take this situation with the adoption of the European Climate Law on March 4, 2020. Other than that, it can be examined in political, economic, and social dimensions. On the economic dimension, two important steps have been taken. The first one is European Industrial Strategy, which was accepted on 10 March 2020, and the second one is Circular Economy Action Plan on 11 March 2020. They are the new agendas for long-term sustainable growth in the European Union’s structure. Regarding the economic dimensions, European industrial policy that based on fundamental European values and its social market traditions. It tries to support all players in European industry, including big and small companies, and young generations of innovative start-ups. In this way, the strategy for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) objectives to reduce red tape and help EU members. This new Industrial Strategy composes of three priorities, which are global competitiveness, making Europe, in the international area, climate-neutral by 2050, and shaping Europe’s digital long-term future.

What is The New Action Plan?

The new Action Plan objectives are to make European Union member countries’ economies fit for a green future, enforce EU’s competitiveness while protecting the environment, and give novel rights to whole consumers. Moreover, the new Plan concentrates on the design and production of an effective circular economy, intending to ensure that the resources used are kept in the EU economy for as long as possible. Therefore, regarding economical dimensions, the new Action Plan indicates the main arguments that are making long-term sustainable products according to the norm in the EU, correctly informing the consumers, ensuring minimum waste, and concentrating the sectors that use the most resources and where the potential for circularity is upland. Informing consumers in detail about the global climate, the use of recyclable products, environmental pollution, and the widespread use of electric vehicles can be characterized as the social dimension awareness of the Europen Green Deal.

On the other hand, when looking at the political dimensions of the European Green Deal, there are important conditions that need policy and decision makers of all EU members and EU structures require additional effort. At that point, being “union” in terms of governance and policymaking is significant for long-term sustainable solutions. It is also remarkable that the question of how the required powerful policy reinforcement can be achieved has to be analyzed in more depth by policy and decision-makers. In managing this political process, Europe’s main economic policies, such as the energy industry, need to be well examined. Politically, the European Union is heavily involved in different issues. Faced with a major energy crisis due to the Russia-Ukraine war, the European Union needs to manage its limited energy resources wisely and with an acceptable policy. In general perspective regarding the social dimensions of the European Green Deal, renewable technologies have a higher potential in the modern world, and they have quite a lot of public support. European society wants to invest in the sustainable energy transformation of the reusable system, which is a significant contribution of local society at different levels.

Political Economic and Social Dimensions

The importance that the European Union attaches to sustainable energy use and energy transition strategies can be seen in the adoption of many different regulations. According to this topic, there are important proposals that are taken by the European Union structure. Stop deforestation, innovate long-term sustainable waste governance, and make soils much more healthy, targeting sustainable travel processes, removing stored carbon, and a new EU framework to decarbonize gas markets, promote hydrogen and reduce methane emissions are incredibly important steps for the EU. In this context, the European Union demonstrates its political, economic, and social commitment by sharing this important priority with its existing members, as well as with its neighbors and candidate members. One of the main objectives is to reduce energy consumption and the high cost of electric bills.

To sum up, the current climate crisis, environmental pollution, and rapid depletion of natural energy resources are directly related to the human population. In this context, the future population of the European Union, taking into account its member states and candidate states, is expected to increase. In particular, the war between Russia and Ukraine has deeply affected European countries, which are heavily dependent on Russia for energy. To reduce their dependence on Russia as much as possible in the future, the European Union needs to focus on the renewable energy industry, the production of electric vehicles, and their management. If the European Green Deal succeeds in this strategy in the long term, the future could see a European Union that strengthens itself from within, leaving Russia out of the game. This issue, with its economic, political, and social aspects, will be very useful not only for the European Union but also for other developed and developing countries. In this context, the European Union can be shown as an important role model for other countries.
