Question for written answer  E-000765/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Elena Lizzi (ID)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: The green and digital transitions call for protection of workers and SMEs

The COVID-19 crisis has challenged and continues to challenge manufacturing activities and the labour market, having a dramatic impact on employment.

Some Member States have recently published their 2020 employment data. In Italy, in particular, there was a 0.4% fall in employment in December compared to November, amounting to -101 000 units, 98% of whom were women(1).

The Commission Work Programme 2021 reads: ‘The action plan will be this Commission’s key instrument to contribute to socio-economic recovery and resilience in the medium and long-term, with a view to enhancing social fairness of the digital and green transitions’(2).

Given that the impact of the digital and green transitions will come on top of the impact of COVID-19 on employment, can the Commission clarify:

what specific measures, instruments and resources it intends to use to conduct the digital and green transitions, with particular reference to their impact on the current employment of EU citizens and on SMEs, already stricken by the COVID-19 crisis;

whether any studies or research have been carried out on the duration of these transitions and their employment implications;

whether it intends to re-include the SURE programme in its action plan, pending the launch of employment-promoting reforms by the Member States?
