21 member organisations of the European Alliance for a Just Transition have signed a joint letter on an EU policy framework for just transition, with the aim of putting the issue more centre stage in the next EU policy cycle. The letter was sent on 11 March to the relevant ministers and to the Permanent Representatives of the Member States to the EU. They are called on to raise the ambition of the forthcoming Environment Council Conclusions and other relevant decisions in the coming months.

Simultaneously achieving ambitious climate and environmental goals, promoting equity and fostering an economy that ensures the well-being of all within planetary boundaries is what a just transition policy framework should be about. The recently adopted European Economic and Social Committee opinion on “Advancing the EU's just transition policy framework” focuses on the benefits and opportunities of a green transition and provides valuable guidance on its objectives, structure and content.
