Journey to Zero: I. AmCham Sustainability Conference

sustainability conference amcham

The European Commission released its 'Fit for 55' climate package as part of the European Green Deal in July 2021. The package aims at bringing all existing climate and energy-related initiatives in line with the EU's new 2030 55% greenhouse gas emission reductions targets. The new set of legislation will significantly impact all the businesses within the EU. The First AmCham Sustainability Conference – championed by the AmCham EU Green Deal Working Group - will take a closer look at how this complex climate package will affect companies, and how leaders can leverage these changes.
