The von der Leyen Commission’s six priorities: Legislative and non-legislative delivery to 31 August 2022

Concretely, EPRS finds that, ahead of the 2022 State of the Union address, of the over 500 initiatives foreshadowed by the von der Leyen Commission on taking office or since (521), almost two thirds (330) have already been submitted and, on the legislative proposals, the co-legislators have started work. Of those 330, almost half (160) have already been adopted by the co-legislators, or, for the non-legislative initiatives (such as strategies, action plans and other communications, amounting to nearly one in five of the total), by the Commission itself. The great majority of the remainder are either proceeding normally through the legislative process (120) or are close to adoption (16). Conversely, a tenth of them are proceeding very slowly or are currently blocked (34). While the Commission’s first priority, the European Green Deal, ranks highest in terms of the number of initiatives planned (130), its third priority, ‘An economy that works for people’, has seen the highest number of legislative proposals actually adopted so far (34).
