How the necessary economic support measures can cushion the corona crisis and accelerate the ecological transition

Publicationtype Policy Brief
Publicationabstract

The Corona crisis is shattering our societies and is forcing governments to provide emergency aid and far-reaching economic measures of historic proportions. While we focus on health and short-term support for employees and companies, we must not repeat the mistakes of past economic crises and think of tomorrow in all our actions. The economic recovery measures can not only “restart” the economy, but also set the course for the necessary transformation. Climate protection can and must be a driver of economic recovery and is the basis for our long-term prosperity. Using a few examples, we want to illustrate how short-term economic support can be reconciled with our long-term societal priorities.
