The webinar Protecting the competitiveness of low carbon and circular industries in Europe: the case of Aluminium will be held on 26 January, from 13:00 to 14:30 CET.
This webinar, chaired by Maria da Graça Carvalho, comes in the backdrop of the Competitiveness Council Conclusions on “A recovery advancing the transition towards a more dynamic, resilient and competitive European industry“, adopted on 16 November 2020. The European Commission’s Impact Assessment of its EU 2030 Climate Targets Plan Communication recognises the strong risks for those industrial sectors which are most exposed to international trade and competition in a scenario of fragmented global climate action.
The webinar will focus on the material dimension of the global energy transition and the challenges for the European Aluminium industry stemming from the EU 2030 Climate Targets Plan Communication.
The outcome of the discussion will feed into the EU institution’s ongoing work on the revised EU industrial Strategy and the upcoming “Fit for 55 package”, both due during the first semester of 2021.
