Commission publishes White Paper on sustainable pensions [23 April 2012]

In February 2012, the European Commission published a White Paper looking at how to create adequate, safe and sustainable pensions in the European Union. The White Paper contains a range of hard and soft initiatives intended to help create conditions that will enable a balance between time spent working and time in retirement, to ensure that those who move to another country can keep their pension rights, and to help people obtain adequate pensions once they are retired.


On 16 February 2012, the European Commission published a White Paper entitled An agenda for adequate, safe and sustainable pensions (303Kb PDF). The White Paper describes the ageing of the European population as the main challenge for the future of the EU’s pension system.
