CO2 standards trilogue: Urgent need for inclusion of a Just Transition framework for Europe’s automotive workforce

On 21st of October 2022, the collation of industry, trade unions, employers, and environmental organisations, jointly called for a Just Transition framework within the new rules to accelerate structural change in the industry. The existing EU Just Transition Fund’s resources cannot be spread thinner, as they are already needed for the important challenge in the coal-dependent and carbon-intensive regions and industries. However, they can offer a model for a Just Transition for the broader automotive and mobility ecosystem.
