Priority 3: Sustainable development and industrial policy


Energy policy is a very sensitive issue on the agenda of industriAll Europe affiliates in energy-producing as well as energy-intensive sectors. At the same time, the Energy Union is a key priority of the current Commission administration: it calls unions to get increasingly active in influencing the energy transition that is necessary to curb CO2 emissions and thus contain global warming, while defending quality employment. Especially regions that are coal-dependent will have to undergo profound changes, including large restructuring processes. It is up to trade unions to negotiate the future of the workers in those regions.
