The European Commission is working on a Chemicals Transition Pathway that presents the roadmap leading towards the achievement of both the green and digital transition (twin transition) and towards the resilience of the industry. The roadmap is the result of a co-creation process with stakeholders, under the European Green Deal framework. Stakeholders discussed with the Commission on each of the building blocks composing the transition pathway’s matrix developed by the Industrial Forum .
For each building block a series of actions and initiatives were identified as contribution to the achievement of the twin transition and resilience of the industry. These actions were done clustered in topics and presented against an indicative timeline; providing a direction on some major aspects that require sequencing as part of a co-implementation process in order make it operational. The document constitutes the first component of the broader transition pathway of the Energy Intensive Industries (EIIs) ecosystem.
