Gren Deal Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans

Today (29 June), the Just Transition Platform (JTP) will be launched to help member states to draw up their territorial Just Transition Plans and access funding from the over €150 billion Just Transition Mechanism. This online platform will provide technical and advisory support for public and private stakeholders in coal and other carbon-intensive regions, with easy access to information on funding opportunities and sources of technical assistance.

European Green Deal Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans (pictured), Cohesion and Reforms Commissioner Elisa Ferreira, and Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson will launch the Just Transition Platform during an online event starting today at 09h30.

This will begin a week of online events dedicated to coal, lignite, peat and oil shale regions as well as carbon-intensive regions, organised under the Coal Regions Virtual Week and the Carbon-Intensive Regions Seminar. These events will inform stakeholders of the latest EU policy developments and provide an opportunity for good practices sharing. A full programme and registration is available here.

More information is available in this press release; the interventions of the commissioners will be made available on their websites.
