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, 01 November 2021 – The European Steel Association (EUROFER) welcomes the statement of the EU and the US to tackle jointly shared challenges in the steel and aluminium sectors, including negotiating an arrangement on carbon intensity and global overcapacity, and replacing the current 25% tariff measure of the US Section 232 on EU steel imports by a tariff-rate quota regime (TRQ) based on historical volumes. The arrangement between the US and the EU is a first important step in favour of a globally decarbonised industry in light of COP26 negotiations.
