Orgalim joins EU Industry Days opening plenary
24 February 2021
Orgalim President Rada Rodriguez spoke yesterday in the opening plenary debate of EU Industry Days, sharing the perspective of Europe's technology industries on "Green = growth, or how European companies can champion green transition."
The key success factor to achieve the Green Deal and climate neutrality goals is ensuring Europe’s SMEs invest in technology
Other speakers reinforced these key points. Pierre Gattaz, President of BusinessEurope described the updated Industrial Strategy as a "golden opportunity to accelerate the green and digital transition but also to rethink the whole strategy for Europe." However he, too, warned that competition will be fierce and stressed that policy makers must avoid placing an excessive burden on companies. "What we need is a true business-friendly environment in Europe where companies can take risks, bring innovative and competitive solutions to the market and get a return on their investments."
