First Just Transition plans adopted

During the months of July and August 2022, the European Commision announced the adoption of the first Territorial Just Transition Plans (TJTPs). The process started with the adoption with the plans for the Greek coal regions and Cyprus, adding later on Austria and the German basins of Rheinisches Revier and Nördliches Ruhrgebiet.
