Driving industrial innovation towards the European Green Deal goals

This event is jointly organised by CAN Europe, Carbon Market Watch, E3G, EEB and WWF  as part of the European Commission’s EU Industry Days 2021.

Date and time: 10:45-12:15 CET, 25 February 2021 (online), register here

Background:
The EU has a ‘Green Deal’ and a commitment to climate neutrality. This means that industry, which currently produces 16% of EU emissions, will have to rapidly clean up its act and move to a more circular production and innovation model. Such a change offers important opportunities to companies, workers and the public.

At this online event, five experts will discuss how industrial sectors can align with the European Green Deal, and what that will mean for resources, the climate and air quality.

Speakers: 

Janez Potocnik, co-chair of the UNEP International Resource Panel and Partner at SYSTEMIQ
Johanna Lehne, Senior Policy Advisor, E3G
Mel Allwood, Sustainability and Wellbeing Team Lead, Arup London
Donal O’Riain, CEO, Ecocem
Representative of Schneider Electric (tbc)

Moderator: Sonja van Renssen, Managing Editor, Energy Monitor, New Statesman Group.

The EU Industry Days, organised by the European Commission, aims to be a platform for discussion of industrial challenges and for developing opportunities and policy responses in an inclusive dialogue with a wide range of partners.
