On April 3, 2013, Artur Runge-Metzger, the European Union's Director of the European Commission's Climate Action Directorate joined SCEPA's lecture series on the Economics of Climate Change to present, "Towards 2020: A New Chapter in Europe's Climate Change Policy."

On January 1, 2013, the EU stepped forward to lead the movement for needed adaptation policies, including carbon pricing and renewables, by adopting its “20-20-20” package. The new program sets European-wide targets for 2020 that build on the Kyoto Protocol and impacts sectors falling under both the EU emissions trading system and renewable energy.

The event was generously supported by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK).
