E3G welcomes Theresa Griffin, former MEP for the North West England as a Senior Associate in its Clean Economy programme.
Her work will focus on supporting the Clean Economy team to engage stakeholders with an interest in the social dimensions of the EU’s Green Deal. These dimensions include just transition, energy poverty, citizens’ and workers’ rights and consumer protection. Engaging with these stakeholders will be crucial to the successful development and delivery of the Green Deal.
“Theresa has worked tirelessly to ensure social justice is woven into the fabric of the European Green Deal, which is essential for Europe to be able to hold itself up as a model for successful climate action that works for citizens. We’re delighted to welcome Theresa on board in this pivotal year.”
“I am delighted to be joining E3G as a Senior Associate working with its terrific team in the Clean Economy Programme to help place citizens as full participants in achieving a climate neutral Europe. I really look forward to working at E3G with the trade union movement, MEPs, the Commission, Member States, citizens and cities to help to shape the narrative to tackle the barriers to a safe climate for all. At an exciting and crucial time for EU and global ambition we must place the well-being of all citizens at the heart of climate action and achieve a social approach to industrial policy and recovery. We need a Just Transition to climate that leaves no worker, community or young person behind.”
