On 21 April 2021 at 12:00 the European Steel Association (EUROFER) and industriAll European Trade Union are jointly hosting an online event: ‘Building an economic and social framework for a successful climate transition by 2050’. Find out more and register: here.
About the online event
The EU’s 2050 net-zero target is not just a technological challenge. It is also an economic and social challenge. Investment in new technologies will be high, roll-out will be expensive and disruptive – and those changes will affect companies from top to bottom, with new skills and tests for all employees and workers.
This online event, touching on areas of common interest for EUROFER and industriAll, will be a series of conversations exploring how this change will take place, and what will happen during the transition to the net-zero carbon future.
The webinar will take place on Zoom with the moderator and hosts from industriAll and EUROFER meeting invited speakers.

Brussels, 16 March 2023 – A successful EU industrial policy requires a value chain-based approach, with steel as an integral part of the Net-Zero Industry Act. To ensure that the EU remains competitive in the greatest transformation of the industry towards climate-neutrality, it is essential to adopt disruptive thinking and innovative measures to create a more attractive green investment environment whilst securing the EU’s strategic autonomy. The European Steel Association (EUROFER) details its comprehensive vision in a new policy paper covering all industrial policy fields relevant for a green, decarbonised and prospering European manufacturing industry, including energy and climate, environment and circularity, investment, trade, internal market and skills.
New global reality requires disruptive thinking and innovative measures
Brussels, 14 March 2023 – The revision of the Electricity Market Design (EMD) risks becoming another missed opportunity to secure cost-competitive fossil-free electricity and to introduce solutions providing swift relief to energy-intensive sectors exposed to global competition. It remains unclear how industrial energy consumers will be able to access the large quantities of renewable and low-carbon electricity needed for their decarbonisation in the coming years, says the European Steel Association following the publication of the European Commission’s reform proposal on the EMD.
