Editors: Gian Marco Bovenzi, Francesco Cappelletti
It is unobjectionable that climate change affects economy. Whereas the power of global capital markets plays a key role in the shifting to decarbonisation. Hence, the investment process impacts the speed and magnitude of the transition to a low-carbon economy.
This publication, published in cooperation with Fondazione Luigi Einaudi, aims at being a stimulus for a debate on the role of gas in the European Taxonomy and on energy transition policies – also in light of the most recent events. A debate that today sees EU Member States quite uncertain on whether adopting a common strategy to do without the Russian gas – and, if yes, which strategy.

Founded in 1962 by Mr. Giovanni Malagodi, the Foundation promotes liberalism as an instrument to elaborate original responses to the complexity of the current issues related to globalization and to the progressively increasing technological evolution, with the goal of fostering individual liberties and economic prosperity.
