Decarbonizing Europe – The Netherlands

What are the Netherlands plans to become more sustainable?
Find out in our project Decarbonizing Europe

At long last, the Netherlands presented its first draft of the Recovery and Resilience Plan last March. The final version came a few weeks ago, as the country will likely get €4.8 billion. 40 percent of this sum will finance climate-related investments. Green hydrogen and offshore wind power are key projects part of the plan. In addition, money is being set aside to tackle the housing crisis – while establishing a subsidy for energy efficiency in buildings. A stricter CO2 and flying tax aim to reduce emissions too.
