How can the transition to climate neutrality succeed? To support EU regions on their way to a climate-neutral economy, the EU has launched the Just Transition Platform (JTP). 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. These each 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 Just Transition Platform Conference, a meeting of this working group will take place on 26 October in Brussels. Dr Jan-Philipp Kramer, head of the working group, Neysan Khabirpour and Vera Fuhs will lead the meeting. The members of the working group will exchange views in person for the first time and discuss the "Implementation Plan". The working group developed this plan together over the summer.
The "Implementation Plan" contains concrete proposals for implementation to facilitate a just transition in regions with a strong chemical industry.
In the further course of the meeting, all four working groups come together to network with each other and to be informed by representatives of the Commission about various support instruments for JTF regions.
