Over 1000 organisations united call on EU Leaders to support the business case for investing in Europe with the European Industrial Deal

April 12, 2024

The Antwerp Declaration and its call for a European Industrial Deal have seen a remarkable surge in support. In a historic display of unity, it has reached 1000 supporters from business leaders of companies, associations, and Trade Union organisations representing 25 sectors across Europe.

First presented by 73 industry leaders on 20 February 2024 at the European Industry Summit to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, the rapid increase in signatures underscores the pressing need for concerted action in the face of unparalleled economic challenges.

Boyana Achovski, GIE Secretary GeneralΒ underlined ’As gas infrastructure, it is our mission to support European industries and households. Our signature on the Antwerp Declaration reflects that well. Our infrastructure will evolve towards 2050, ensuring the establishment of an energy supply which is both environmentally and economically sustainable. Our GIE members involved in Hydrogen, Biomethane and CCUS are on it.’

By leveraging the already well-developed energy infrastructure in the EU, the focus should be on harnessing synergies to facilitate the integration of renewable and low-carbon gases, while simultaneously ensuring security of supply. This approach will result in significant cost and time savings, enabling efficient energy system integration. Therefore, a future-proof gas infrastructure emerges as a key pillar in enhancing the competitiveness of the EU industry on a global scale.

The European Council next week and the Competitiveness Council in May, the Letta and Draghi reports, the Clean Transition Dialogues, and the Antwerp Declaration all come together in a historic moment for industry in Europe.

The Antwerp Declaration serves as a wake-up call to decision-makers in Europe, laying out a widely agreed framework of ten key points outlining the need to address high energy prices, establishing common European infrastructure, secure raw material supplies, foster a smarter innovation framework, and stimulate demand for sustainable products. The declaration also advocates for a robust investment framework for technologies and calls for leveraging the single market to ensure businesses remain in Europe.

The Antwerp Declaration for a European Industrial Deal is now open to individuals who wish to express their support in a personal capacity. The declaration can be signed via this link: https://antwerp-declaration.eu/
