WEBINAR 2021: Is GREEN DEAL a threat or an opportunity?

We invite you to a unique series of webinars 15 June - 22 June - 29 June 2021 What does GREEN DEAL bring and will bring to the Czech industry? And what will it bring to the environment? We will take a purely pragmatic look at the green deal in an information-packed webinar series prepared by the Czech Association of Circular Economy. The series consists of three unique online meetings. You can meet representatives of key ministries and industry. The webinar series is under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic. The series is intended primarily for industry representatives, but also for others interested in the topic.

The GREEN DEAL, the Green Deal for Europe, sets out the European Commission's priorities for 2020-2025. The package of measures was presented on 11 December 2019 and aims to move towards a more sustainable, greener economy. Around €260 billion of additional annual investment will be needed to achieve the Agreement's climate and energy targets by 2030, or around 1.5% of gross domestic product. What is the reality? How concrete is it already making its way into the world of industry? And how fast do we need to move to make sure we don't fall behind?

Let's stay patient, let's still stay online, The webinars will take place in the online environment of, which combines the advantages of online and live meetings.
