Support of the Just Transition Platform to the Green Deal


European Commission – DG Regional & Urban Policy




ECORYS, Wuppertal Institut

The assignment

Climate neutrality is the EU's long-term goal. The European Green Deal 2019 proposed greenhouse gas reduction targets of 50 to 55 percent by 2030. The profound changes in the economy, industry, and society that are necessary for this purpose pose enormous challenges for countries and regions. To support a balanced and equitable transition to climate neutrality, including equality and shared prosperity, the EU has introduced the Just Transition Mechanism and is providing assistance and knowledge through the Just Transition Platform. Together with Ecorys (Lead) and the Wuppertal Institute, Prognos is supporting the European Commission – DG Regional & Urban Policy in managing this platform.

Our approach

As part of the technical support for the Just Transition Platform, Prognos’ task is to provide analysis and knowledge management. These include:

  • the compilation of good practices, project examples, and case studies of successful policy approaches or initiatives for the transition to a low-emission economy
  • targeted analytical support for EC-, MS- and high-carbon emission regions
  • leading a working group on chemicals

The project runs from July 2021 to December 2023.
