- Promoting social dialogue
- Addressing Management of Change
- Developing the Social Dimension
- The MoU underlines the responsibility of the Energy Community and its members (the Contracting Parties)
- To establish national working groups with the social partners and consult them on important energy and social policies concerning the sector
- To develop social action plans
- To contribute to the Social Forum which brings together employers, trade unions, government representatives and regulators.
