On 15 July 2010, the European Commission (EC) adopted a new Tax Package aimed at making taxation within the European Union “fairer, greener and fit for the modern economy, and contributing to long-term, sustainable, inclusive growth.”

This package is the first part of a comprehensive and ambitious EU tax agenda for the coming years. The EC will also work on business taxation for the 21st century, addressing the challenges of the digital economy and ensure that all MNCs pay their fair share. In the context of the Green Deal, the EC will ensure taxation supports the EU's objective of reaching climate neutrality by 2050. The EC calls on the EU Parliament, the Council of the EU, NGOs, trade unions and businesses to actively engage in a constructive and inclusive fashion.
