Climate change, energy policy and employment

The ETUC has started a large project on the impact of climate change policies such as reduction of CO2 emissions on Europe's industries. What will it signify for the energy generation, the building sector, steel and transport for example.

The project will be ongoing in 2006. EPSU and other European Industry federations are part of the Steering Committee that also include government and Commission representatives.

Research groups involved come from German Wuppertal, French Syndex and Spanish ISTAS. The results of the project could feed into the ETUC Congress foreseen for 2007.

For EPSU Dick Barry (former Unison) will follow the project and report to the Standing Committee utilities.
