The aim of this chapter is both to explore reforms by the EU as a political entrepreneur in the field of climate change, to produce sustainable growth, and to analyse challenges to achieve these goals in Europe 2020. As such, the European Commission together with the European Parliament have been the most important political entrepreneurs in the ambition to promote climate actions, both before and after Europe 2020 was established. The EU seems to be on a path to, more or less, achieve its 20/20/20 climate and energy targets for 2020 and 2030. However, several challenges, such as budget issues and the will of some member states to implement climate change actions, remain before the EU will be able to adopt all its policies in Europe 2020.
