Watch the discussion here.

In her intervention, Susan highlighted the support of US companies for both the Paris Agreement and the EU's Green Deal. The Paris Agreement creates a stable and predictable framework for investments as well as providing clear goals and a balanced and cost-efficient approach to reduce emissions. She pointed out the ongoing efforts of companies to develop low-carbon technologies and the critical importance of investment in such technologies. Susan described the EU's economic recovery plan as ambitious one that puts the right focus on green and digital issues and which could be an opportunity for EU-US cooporation.
