From Brussels and around the Continent — the top European politics podcast.


Ep 116, presented by Bayer: Swedish Enviro Minister Isabella Lövin — Commission’s Green New Deal

The new episode of POLITICO's EU Confidential podcast is part of our "goes green" series. And the timing could hardly be better, with Ursula von der Leyen this week unveiling her team for the new European Commission — featuring a vice president for a European Green Deal.

Our quartet of journalists from the EU's key capitals — Andrew Gray in Brussels, Rym Momtaz in Paris, Matthew Karnitschnig in Berlin and Annabelle Dickson in London — looks at von der Leyen's lineup (including some strange job titles). We ask: Just how green is Europe going to get under this new Commission?

We hear from Swedish Environment Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin on her country’s plan to become climate neutral by 2045. And POLITICO's environment reporter Paola Tamma catches up with Youth for Climate coordinator Adelaïde Charlier. With global protests planned to coincide with the U.N. Climate Summit on September 23, Charlier sets out what her peers want from politicians and answers criticism that their demands carry too high a price.

Our financial reporter Bjarke Smith-Meyer explores whether the European Central Bank will assume a green hue under Christine Lagarde.

And there's a bit of Brexit too, as our capital quartet stages its own version of prime minister's question time to tackle the latest big mysteries around Britain's delayed departure from the EU.
