Together with 3 high-level speakers we would like to discuss with you: „The external perspective on the Green Deal: Standard-setter or fortress Europe?”

Given the lack of climate ambition at the global level, the EU decided to act solo with the European Green Deal. The soft power Europe wants to lead by example with the view of becoming a global leader in transformative low-carbon technologies, while establishing new business standards. Thus, many key partners are assessing the possible impact of the Green Deal on their political and economic relations with the EU.

9 July 2020

10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Against this background, the webinar will look at:

  • What is the perception of main partners on the Green Deal?
  • Is there a risk of „green” protectionism in Europe?
  • Will European industrial competitiveness benefit or suffer at the international level?
  • How to promote solutions for global climate and environment rules?
