In the first half of 2019, before the European elections, the European Commission will be at the cross-roads to present its vision for a Sustainable Europe 2030, where a new industrial policy will play a key role in the delivery of the commitments of the Paris Agreement and the EU implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
To support the work towards achieving these objectives, the EC has established two major stakeholders Platforms, composed by selected executives from the business, civil society, trade unions and other stakeholder families: (1) The EU multi-stakeholder Platform on the SDGs tasked and the (2) High Level Industrial Roundtable "Industry 2030".
In addition, the recent publication “Collaboration for Impact – Maturity and integration of Sustainability in European Sector Associations” which CSR Europe and PwC presented at the latest European Business Summit in May 2018, shows the need to scale-up the discussion on sustainability at European level and call upon those who are willing to drive market transformation with sustainability as our common purpose.
About the event:
Given the engagement, directly and/or through its members, in both platforms, CSR Europe is happy to invite you to a closed meeting with the aim to:
