Communication adopted by the European Commission on 10 April 2024, taking stock of a series of Clean Transition Dialogues on transforming the European Union (EU) into a clean, resource-efficient, fair and competitive economy.

Further information:

The European Commission set out as of its priorities for the mandate the transformation of the EU into a clean, resource-efficient, fair and competitive economy. In order to turn Europe into the first climate-neutral continent in the world, the European Commission presented its European Green Deal in 2019. This was followed up by a range of legislative initiatives and, in 2023, by the publication of the Green Deal Industrial Plan.

In this context, the launch of Clean Transition Dialogues was announced during the 2023 State of the European Union (SOTEU) address, aiming to establish a discussion with industry and social partners on how to strengthen and support the implementation of European Green Deal. Nine Clean Transition Dialogues have taken place since then, in which industry and social partners confirmed their commitment to shape and implement the strategy. The Dialogues have focused on hydrogen, energy-intensives industries, clean tech, energy infrastructure, critical raw materials, forest-based bioeconomy, cities, clean mobility, and steel.

The Communication highlights a number of building blocks that have been identified through the Dialogues which could support a reinforced industrial approach to deliver on the European Green Deal. The document feeds into the discussion held by EU leaders at an upcoming European Council summit. It was adopted by the European Commission on 10 April 2024.
