Following the successful launch event with European Commission Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans, Europe Jacques Delors & Brunswick Group welcome you to join the second edition of our webinar series on how businesses can navigate the European Green Deal. We are delighted to announce that we will be joined on7 April at 10:30 CEST / BST by lead policymaker MEP Pascal Canfin, Chair of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee and initiator of the Green Recovery Alliance, and Francesco Starace, CEO of ENEL, a leading multinational energy company.
In February, co-legislators in the European Parliament and the Council of the EU finalised and adopted the necessary acts to establish the Recovery and Resilience Facility. Its €672.5 billion financial envelope makes the facility the centrepiece of the Next Generation EU recovery instrument. All eyes are now on the 27 capitals where national governments are expected to finalise their country’s recovery and resilience plans by the end of April. Importantly, at least 37% of each plan’s allocation must support Europe’s green transition.
As the EU is mulling over its post-pandemic recovery, we ask politicians, elected officials, decision-makers, business leaders, and civil society representatives to join us for a timely discussion on how the economic and environmental ambitions of the EU’s recovery plan can be best aligned. In this webinar, we set out to explore the conditions for Europe's green investment plan to deliver the necessary economic stimulus and build resilience to future shocks.
The second edition of our webinar series will be again hosted and moderated by Geneviève Pons, Director General of Europe at Jacques Delors in Brussels, and Pascal Lamy, President emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute and Chair of Europe at Brunswick Group.
