Just transition vital to EU zero emissions ambition

The ETUC is bitterly disappointed that EU has not adopted unanimously a carbon neutrality target for 2050.

"Poland should have embraced the zero emissions target. It would have helped to convince workers and communities in Poland and elsewhere if the European Commission had included earlier this week a comprehensive and ambitious Just Transition strategy, with full details of the mechanism and fund, with the European Green Deal. This would have created more confidence in adopting the carbon neutrality target" said Ludovic Voet, Confederal Secretary of the ETUC.

"Just Transition has to be an integral part of climate action, not an add-on after the event."
