European Commission 2023 Work Programme

November 2022
Region: Europe

On 18 October 2022, the European Commission (EC) published its 2023 Work Programme, entitled “A Union Standing Firm and United”, which summarises the key new and existing policy initiatives the EC wants to advance in the coming year. The Work Programme informs the public, and the co-legislators at the EU level, of the EC’s political commitments to present new initiatives, withdraw pending proposals and review existing EU legislation. The new programme lists 43 new policy initiatives intended to further guide the EU towards its six headline ambitions, while addressing the challenges stemming from rising energy prices and the Russia/Ukraine conflict.

To help our clients get a better overview of the 2023 Work Programme, we have highlighted key initiatives in various policy areas, categorised by ambition headlines and expected rollout date.
