Thank you for joining the European Dialogue kickstarting the clean industrial innovation in 2021. Stakeholders from the private, public, academic, civil society and finance sectors came together for an interactive dialogue on the policy toolkit to transform the basic materials sector to climate neutrality.

Working with stakeholders in Poland and Germany, the Climate Friendly Materials–Market Creation through Policy Innovation (CFM-TRACTION) project has co-created new insights into systemic transformation of the EU basic materials sector – to net-zero emission by 2050. At the event, our aim was to:

  • Exchange knowledge on policy instrument design, synergies in the policy mixes, the structure of an effective policy packages and its governance
  • Support a shared understanding and vision on industrial decarbonisation
  • Accelerate progress towards nationally-led industrial net zero policy frameworks, which are compatible with EU long-term strategies
  • Share lessons from the German and Polish experience to provide insights that can help catalyse systemic transformation of EU basic materials sector to net zero by 2050.
