Rebalancing the European Green Deal: towards a green and social deal

The Social platform and  the members of its Social Pillar and the Sustainable & Inclusive Development Working Groups just published a position paper on Rebalancing the European Green Deal: Towards a Green & Social Deal.

The European Green Deal (EGD) launched in 2019 by the European Commission is drawing to a close and as Social Platform prepares for the next European mandate, we want to focus on achieving a meaningful Just Transition. Tackling climate change is an urgent priority for the security of our planet and future generations, as we encounter increasing extreme weather conditions, the European Green Deal has provided ambitious legislation to move Europe towards a carbon free society. Climate solutions need to be embedded within social justice to ensure no one is left behind during this transition and to prevent a public backlash from groups unable to shoulder the cost of the European Green Deal.
