Focus on

MAKING #SUSTAINABILITY SMARTER

Sustainable development is on top of political agendas around the world. In the EU, it is among the new European Commission’s top priorities. How high are the stakes for global companies? Are there political majorities for pushing ambitious plans? Is technology a booster or an obstacle to achieving the SDGs?

Join the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) and ETNO for a conversation on the political, industrial, market and consumer angle on sustainability and digital goals. The event will be the official European launch of the report “Digital with Purpose – delivering a SMARTer 2030”, prepared by Deloitte for GeSI.
