Position Paper

Joint statement of the Social Partners of the European Social Dialogue on Gas

The European social partners in the gas industry EPSU, Eurogas and IndustriAll Europe are committed to together achieving carbon neutrality in the European Union by 2050. We recognise the vital role the gas sector will play in achieving our climate objectives and the opportunities that new gas technologies offer for the European workforce to have quality, stable and non-seasonal jobs. Europe leads in these fields today and we
should ensure we make the most of this opportunity for all Europeans. While the economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic hits the European economy and industry hard, the European Social Partners in the gas sector are determined to pursue their commitment to the transition to decarbonised and renewable gases and providing quality employment in Europe.
