How Creative Europe aims to go green

A new study sets out the steps that the Creative Europe programme should take to become more sustainable and support the EU’s climate change goals.

The European Commission has been seeking insights on how to make its programmes more sustainable. In 2021, it commissioned the study “Greening the Creative Europe programme” to help achieve its objectives of fighting climate change and to support its efforts to make the Creative Europe Programme more environmental-friendly.

Greening of the Creative Europe Programme report gives an overview of how the creative and cultural sector can contribute to the European Commission efforts to mainstream climate actions through the Creative Europe Programme.

Cultural and creative activities can support the transition to a green economy by promoting sustainability and environmental awareness. At the same time, the programme itself will strive for carbon-neutrality by promoting sustainable means of transport and environmentally responsible behaviours. For further information, see here.
