Reaching climate neutrality - Conditions & actions on how to get there

European businesses stand behind the EU ambition of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (climate neutrality) to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement. This will require deep Member State cooperation, large investments in technologies and low-carbon infrastructure, changes in consumer behaviour and similar ambitions by countries around the world. The Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU and BusinessEurope invite you to join the discussion on how governments, businesses and civil society can work together to reach these common goals. The programme below is still under development. Speakers will be added as and when confirmed.

Organised by the Permanent Representation of Finland to the EU and BusinessEurope.
