Just Transition

Definition: The transition to a sustainable and climate-neutral economy will require substantial investments across Europe. However, the concentration of extractive industries (hard coal, lignite, peat or oil shale) and related energy production as well as carbon intensive industries (e.g. cement, steel, aluminium, fertiliser or paper production) will pose a significant challenge to territories that are strongly reliant on such activities. These territories will need to restructure and/or diversify their economy, maintain social cohesion, and, (re)train the affected workers and youth to prepare them for future jobs.
