Event: Green growth in the Czech Republic 15 May 2017

In Prague on Monday 15th May, Sandbag and the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group are hosting an event examining how climate and energy policy will affect Central and Eastern Europe economy in the future. Looking especially at the twin European Union climate policies, the Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR) and the Emissions Trading System (ETS), the event will discuss how these, and other key policies can be improved to facilitate green growth and help Czech business lead on low-carbon investments.

This afternoon event will highlight the business case for increased low-carbon investment in the Czech economy. The discussion will focus on investments in energy and industrial sectors, and low-hanging fruit such as climate mitigation in cities. The event will bring together senior politicians, policy-makers, business leaders and civil society experts to explore these opportunities.

Speakers include Janne Peljo, who is the leading specialist for Finnish Innovation Fund SITRA.

Full agenda is available here.
