About Europe Delivers

Europe Delivers is a business-led partnership working to build future-fit growth in Europe. Representing major companies from a range of industries, we are committed to using our leadership and commercial capital to advance growth that works with nature, not against it; that benefits the many, not the few; and that creates value across generations, not quarters. We believe that our competitiveness – as companies and as economies – depends on it.

  1. Impact: We catalyse impact through practical projects that apply innovative commercial solutions to complex systems challenges in areas such as food, energy and the future of work.
  2. Narrative : We are working with this leadership community to create narratives with the intellectual and emotional power to drive the change in decisions and mindsets needed to transform our societies and economies. 
  3. Engagement: We are actively building a European community of leaders across industries and sectors with the values, will and capabilities to break away from the current growth model and build a new one, fit for the challenges of our time.

We're working with Mastercard to advance an inclusive flexible working economy. We are mobilising a set of stakeholders around a shared vision of what an inclusive flexible working economy could look like and how it could be achieved. We are running innovation sprints to identify business models and tools to strengthen the income security of flexible workers in practical ways.

The future of work - Verizon

We’re working with Verizon to build the desired future state of work together with a diverse group of experts and practitioners across the US and Europe, to understand the barriers preventing that future and working to tackle those barriers.

Catalysing the energy transition - Shell

We are working with Shell to accelerate the energy transition in Europe in line with Shell’s ambition to become a net zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, in step with society. Shell recognises that to achieve its ambition its business plans will need to change, so together we are building a practical and scalable approach. By leveraging existing Shell strategies and initiatives we are aiming to help decarbonise road transportation, which alone contributes more than 20% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions.
