The EU should focus on the ‘deal’ part of the Green Deal in backing EU industries with a range of actions to speed the green transition. This is instead of competing with US and China’s subsidy programmes, say EPP Group MEPs.

- Cutting regulatory red tape to build energy infrastructure.
- Appointing an EU Green Deal Envoy to clinch quicker trade deals on critical raw materials.
- Establishing a “War Room” in the European Commission to coordinate efforts.
