The next steps of the co-implementation process for the Transition pathway for the Chemical Industry, are now communicated by the EC-DG-Grow, with the opportunity to contribute to the implementation.
Call for applications to join the Working Group on the Chemical Industry: following up on a recent first meeting on the co-implementation of the Transition pathway for the Chemical Industry, the European Commission has set up the Working Group on the Chemical Industry to discuss to the co-implementation of the Transition Pathway.
A call for applications will be launched to join this group. We will keep you informed in due course about the publication of the call.
Please note that the Working Group on the Chemical Industry operates formally as a sub-group the High-Level Expert Group on Energy Intensive Industries. This means that members of the High-Level Expert Group on Energy Intensive Industries are already members of the Working Group on the Chemical Industry and do not need to apply to the call.
Instead, organisations which are not members of the High-Level Expert Group on Energy Intensive Industries will need to apply to the call, if they are interested in joining the Working Group on the Chemical Industry.
