In order to drive a profound climate transformation of heavy industry, EU policies, such as a reformed Emissions Trading System (ETS), remain key. However, complementary domestic interventions will also be required so as to enable a swift, targeted and fair transition. Bond Beter Leefmilieu (BBL), WISE and Germanwatch invite you to a workshop which will zoom in on this interaction.
Key questions on the agenda
- What are the main developments in national industrial policy in Germany, France, the Netherlands and Belgium?
- What are the benefits and pitfalls of interventions at the member state level?
- How have domestic debates evolved, and what has been the role of civil society campaigns and advocacy?
- What are the opportunities for cross-border cooperation? We will share best and worst practices, and exchange examples for advocacy work.
