Europe Water Sector Looks Past Pandemic with Net Zero Emissions in Sights

28 December 2020
Research Note

In November 2020, the UK water sector announced the first sector-wide collaboration to reduce emissions, a “Net Zero 2030 Routemap”. The announcement parallels more wide-sweeping continental EU policies shaping future water sector investments. As recently as July 2020, European Union (EU) leaders responded to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic with an overall budget agreement of US$2.2 billion of investment from 2021 through 2027. The package includes US$1.3 billion to support greening economies and accelerating digital transformation, and US$900 million is for extraordinary recovery measures.
