With the publication of the Green Deal, Europe has set itself an extraordinary challenge: become climate neutral by 2050. Coupled with the economic fallout of COVID-19, European businesses are going to facing extreme challenges in the coming years to meet their societal responsibilities. In this session, we will discuss what policy responses are planned in the coming years, what business support measures are needed, and what companies are already doing to become climate neutral.
