CLEPA, IndustriAll Europe, Ceemet (European Tech & Industry Employers) ACEA, CECRA, ETRMA and trade unions, are calling on the EC to implement what they term a “bold” industrial recovery plan.

“Such a plan should be based on two objectives: First of all, bringing the industry back on track by stimulating sales and reviving production, and secondly, supporting the industry in its journey towards a carbon-neutral future, based on the Green Deal and Europe’s climate objectives,” said a joint statement from the bodies.

“To date, the sector has been substantially investing in its transition towards the new paradigm of a carbon-neutral and digitalised economy: including, alternative powertrains, batteries, connected cars, mobility services, and automated driving. The industry can make a real contribution to the Green Deal and mitigating the climate emergency.

“But due to COVID-19, strong support from the national governments and the Commission is needed in order to help the sector to make the necessary investments in transitioning to decarbonisation while supporting European jobs and keeping its contribution to EU exports and the social welfare of European citizens.”
