Europe at its best on multi-stakeholder consensus

Building consensus among multiple stakeholders was made possible through the EU SDG Platform. Its members presented a report to the European Commission for a sustainable Europe 2030. The report aims to provide insights and suggestions to the European Commission's Reflection Paper 'Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030', planned for December 2018.

According to a press release by EU, both Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Vice-President Jyrki Katainen were delighted with the results achieved by the platform. Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, underlined: "This is Europe at its best – building consensus among various stakeholders, on the single most important topic for our future: Sustainability. I am grateful for this crucial contribution, from which we should all learn."

The five-chapter report includes an initial assessment of the need for putting sustainability at the centre of each and every EU policy. This sustainable core must be supported by a multi-level and multi-stakeholder governance, with the involvement of civil society as the ultimate guarantor of sustainability.

Moreover, an adequate toolbox needs to be developed for an efficient action to mainstream sustainable policies as the essential element of growth. The document also contains some policy proposals and the future steps needed to reach this objective. Read the full document here.
