Climate action and energy transition can have numerous distributional effects on society. These include higher price for carbon-intensive products that can affect unevenly different income classes; the need for upfront investment and adequate information to have access to energy-efficient technologies; and an uneven distribution of benefits stemming from the improvement of air and environmental quality.

In a joint project the European Policy Centre and FES Brussels will take a a closer look at these effects in the mobility sector in order to find solutions how a socially fair transition towards green and sustainable mobility can be strengthened in Europe.

An expert roundtable beginning of October will finetune the main research questions of this project and explore some first conclusions for a final policy paper.
