Green and Digital: discussing frontier technologies for a successful climate transition at EUSEW 2020
26 June 2020
Cassandra Pillay, Climate Change Expert at the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, presented three key policy recommendations that are essential for the digital transition and the future sustainability goals. These were, to manoeuvre the innovation race, increase the agility of governments, and prevent the deepening of global inequalities.
Throughout the session, attendees were able to join the debate and express their views using Sli.do. A copy of the recording, including the results of the different polls, is available via this link.
Luykx closed the session outlining the broad agreement that concerted actions at all levels were needed to realise the energy and climate objectives in a cost-efficient manner; and digital was key to translating these challenges into drivers of sustainable growth. As he said, “ultimately, Green and Digital will help Europe and its industries maintain global leadership”.
