Commission adopts its 2021 work programme

The European Commission has adopted its 2021 work programme, which focuses on six highlighted areas including the European Green Deal and making Europe fit for a digital age. Every year the Commission puts forward its work programme for the proceeding year, comprising a list of actions to be taken. 

This year, there are 44 policy objectives organised under six headlines. The six headlines are:

  • A European Green Deal - including a Fit for 55 package, which aims to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030
  • A Europe fit for a digital age
  • An economy that works for people - including recovery plans following the pandemic
  • A stronger Europe in the world - including a continuation of the Commission's work towards a safe and accessible COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Promoting our European way of life
  • A new push for European democracy.
