Just Transition Platform
Carbon-Intensive Regions




The seventh Just Transition Platform (JTP) Conference will take place in Brussels from 25 to 27 April. To support EU regions on their way to a climate-neutral economy, the European Commission has launched the Just Transition Platform. Together with Ecorys and the Wuppertal Institute, Prognos supports the European Commission in managing this platform. Support services and knowledge products are available on the platform. The JTP has also set up four working groups for carbon-intensive regions. Three of them focus on a specific carbon-intensive sector that is strongly affected by the transformation: chemicals, steel and cement. The fourth working group focuses on the horizontal stakeholder strategy. Prognos is leading the working group for the chemical industry.

Following the JTP Conference, a meeting of its working groups will take place on 27 April. Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer, head of the working group for the chemical industry, Vera Fuhs, Neysan Khabirpour and Markus Zock will facilitate the related meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to exchange on the implementation of activities, such as policy recommendations, collections of good practices or concept papers, by the end of 2023 upon which members have agreed earlier. A corresponding Common Implementation Plan will be published on the JTP website.
