This joint publication with the European Environment Agency (EEA) presents the findings from complementary research carried out simultaneously by both agencies on the socioeconomic impacts of climate policies and measures. While Eurofound focuses particularly on the distributional effects of these policies based on the experiences of Member States, the EEA analyses scientific research about the monetary and non-monetary social impacts of climate mitigation policies and its outcome in terms of inequalities. The publication highlights evidence on the distribution of costs and benefits of climate policies across social groups. It also explores what is already being done successfully in the EU to alleviate any undesired effects of the transition, while contributing towards reconciling these policies with social and just transition objectives.
