LibMod-Policy Paper: INVESTMENT PLANS OF THE EU — oppor­tu­ni­ties for Ukraine in the area of the Euro­pean Green Deal implementation

The ana­lyt­i­cal paper “Invest­ment plans of the EU: oppor­tu­ni­ties for Ukraine in the area of the Euro­pean Green Deal imple­men­ta­tion” iden­ti­fies the most impor­tant spheres of involve­ment for the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment and busi­nesses under the EGD policy. It also exam­ines avail­able invest­ment and financ­ing mech­a­nisms for the Ukrain­ian state and private sector under exist­ing Green Deal framework.

The research was com­mis­sioned by LibMod and done by Dixi Group in frames of the project “Ukraine in Europe”, sup­ported by the Federal Foreign Office.

The Euro­pean Union has ambi­tious plans on climate change and envi­ron­men­tal invest­ments in the upcom­ing decade, aiming to become carbon neutral by 2050. Under the Euro­pean Green Deal frame­work, the EU will mobi­lize €1 tril­lion of invest­ments for sus­tain­able projects and poli­cies that will come from the EU and national budgets, private capital and loan guar­an­tees. Half of this financ­ing is expected to be pro­vided from the next budget of the Union, the 2021–2027 Mul­ti­an­nual Finan­cial Framework.

Most of the EU financ­ing under the Euro­pean Green Deal will be avail­able for member states – gov­ern­ments, private and non-profit sectors, and indi­vid­u­als. Yet, there still are ways for the Ukrain­ian busi­nesses to get involved. One of such ways is to iden­tify the areas where addi­tional exports of goods or ser­vices will be needed, facil­i­tate Ukraine-EU trade, and attract addi­tional foreign invest­ments in the national economy. As the EGD pri­or­i­tizes certain areas, Euro­pean busi­nesses and gov­ern­ments will drive demand in bio­di­ver­sity pro­tec­tion, sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture, clean energy, sus­tain­able indus­try, build­ing and ren­o­vat­ing, sus­tain­able mobil­ity, elim­i­nat­ing pol­lu­tion, cir­cu­lar economy and digital tech­nolo­gies. Finan­cial instru­ments such InvestEU, Just Tran­si­tion Mech­a­nism, Horizon Europe, Next Gen­er­a­tion EU, Mod­ern­iza­tion Fund, Cohe­sion Fund, Con­nect­ing Europe Facil­ity, Inno­va­tion Fund will be used to achieve the set goals.

Key ques­tions dis­cussed in this research are:

  • Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of areas that will be pri­or­i­tized for devel­op­ment in the EGD strate­gic poli­cies as those which will provide invest­ment and export opportunities.
  • Research of funding mech­a­nisms for pri­or­ity areas of the EGD that will be pro­longed or created for the next EU budget period (2021–2027).
  • Analy­sis of the poten­tial of Ukrain­ian busi­nesses to meet the growing demand from the EU coun­tries in certain areas, the devel­op­ment of which will be accel­er­ated by the EGD.
  • Research of the EU plans in terms of inter­na­tional aid in its budget for the next period and under the EGD frame­work; selec­tion of those avail­able for Ukraine;
  • Devel­op­ment of rec­om­men­da­tions for dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers in Ukraine, with a focus on the gov­ern­ment and the private sector.
  • Con­sid­er­a­tion of COVID-19 recov­ery aspect, with regards to both Ukrain­ian poli­cies direc­tion and its align­ment with the EU course, and to financ­ing avail­able for eco­nomic and social indi­ca­tors improve­ment in terms of third coun­tries recovery.
