EsadeGeo Energy Exchange: Three questions for Bert de Wel
At the event “EU Industry and the Energy Transition”, we caught up with Bert de Wel, Climate Policy Officer at International Trade Union Confederation, for a 3-question exchange. This event, held in Madrid on February 21, 2020, was hosted by the EsadeGeo Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics, together with the Repsol Foundation.
0:09 I What are the key messages you are bringing to our event on EU industry and the energy transition?
1:31 I Is the just transition a concept that is only relevant for rich and industralized countries?
2:08 I How can we achieve the energy transition without putting industry competitiveness at risk?
Note: This interview was recorded in February 2020, before the European Commission’s proposal to increase the EU’s emissions reduction target to 55% by 2030. The unions call for a Climate Law that links an ambitious climate target with strong social requirements and an inclusive governance where workers are actively involved.
