To address the immense challenges of climate change effectively and to achieve the net-zero targets for Europe, it is essential to join forces and act decisively.
The CEO Alliance for Europe’s Recovery, Reform and Resilience was formed in 2020 against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and the historic European Green Deal. The Alliance’s shared goal is to make the EU the world’s leading region for climate protection while unlocking investments, fuelling innovations in new technologies and creating future-proof jobs.
We consider the challenges ahead as opportunities for our future. We see ourselves as advocates for a transformation towards a more prosperous, digitalized, sustainable, decarbonized and resilient Europe. Our joint projects focus on the future competitiveness of green technologies.
The members view themselves as an Action Tank, working together on cross-sector pan-European projects at scale: cross-EU charging infrastructure for heavy duty trucks, integration of EU power systems (in particular grids), digital carbon footprint tracking, sustainable and healthy buildings for the future of work and living, e-buses for Europe, green hydrogen value chains and the rapid development of battery production. Further projects are being prepared, including one involving low carbon steel. Explore our newsroom to keep up-to-date about our progress.

The Alliance brings together top executives from the energy, transport, finance and technology industries (see below). Additionally, McKinsey & Company is serving as a knowledge contributor for the CEO Alliance and is providing further research and data.
The CEO Alliance believes that fighting global climate change will require a collective effort and investment by all EU member states and collaboration between the public sector and industry.
