Be part of the recovery
As Europe is now gearing towards relaunching its economy, EU leaders have made the Green Deal their recovery motto to rebuild more sustainable and resilient economies across Europe.
With targets to render the EU bloc climate-neutral by 2050, the European Green Deal requires ambitious legislation and investments in all sectors of the economy, from renewable energies and retrofit technologies to innovative transportation networks and sustainable forms of agricultural production.
Schuman Associates, in partnership with Bird & Bird, invite you to attend a 90-minute public webinar on what this transition means for citizens and companies, what opportunities the Green Deal brings and how they will be financed, as well as insights on delivering feasible green projects.
MEP Siegfried Mureșan, European Parliament Rapporteur on the financing of the Green Deal, will host this webinar, discussing the financing of Green Deal in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and what is to be expected in future.
The information presented will be critical for those working in large corporations in the areas of energy, transport, technology, mobility and health, as well as representatives from chambers of commerce, trade organisations and public bodies.
