Episode 299: Climate news from Europe, 2022 wish list continued

Plus, it's time for plastics and climate activists to get their causes synced up.


This week's run time is 43:01. 

What's next on Europe's climate agenda (26:40)

Industrial innovation. New offshore wind projects. Big plans for EVs. That's some positive news coming out of Europe, notes BusinessGreen Editor in Chief James Murray, in this segment. "It's the rare public-facing business that doesn't have something constructive to say on [the net-zero movement]," Murray said. The downside? Uncertainty over COVID and concerns about energy inflation could impede progress.
