Eco-innovation is a powerful instrument that combines reduced negative impact on the environment with a positive impact on the economy and society.
Eco-innovation in companies leads to reduced costs, improves capacity to capture new growth opportunities and enhances their reputation among customers.
Support for innovation will be part of the investments in key green sectors needed to build resilience and create growth and jobs in a fair and inclusive society. Horizon Europe, Next Generation EU, Recovery and Resilience facility and REPower EU Plan are programmes and plans which support innovation across EU.
Eco-innovation, by reducing impacts on the environment, increasing resilience against external pressures and using resources more efficiently, is vital in supporting the transition to a circular economy and achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal.
