Focus on

Delivering a Green and Digital Recovery through Connectivity

10 November 2020, 10h00 – 11h30 CET, Online event

Next Generation EU will accelerate investment in strategic economic areas that will create jobs and promote recovery from the current crisis, whilst supporting the EU’s green and digital transitions. Fostering the widespread deployment of very high capacity networks, including 5G, will  be a key plank of the EU recovery and resilience plan, by bridging the digital divide and paving the way for positive spill-over effects on society as a whole.

In this context, ETNO organises an online workshop for policymakers to discuss the role that the telecommunications sector will play to reach sustainable recovery goals. Leading EU telcos will provide real case examples of making digital infrastructure and services greener, and participants will bring their perspectives on the best strategies to put digital investments at the service of more sustainable European societies.

Felicia Stanescu, Head of Unit RECOVER.B2 in the European Commission and MEPs Dragoș Pîslaru, Miapetra Kumpula-Natri, Nicolás González Casares will join the panel discussion on sustainable recovery through connectivity.

Maya Ormazabal, Head of Environment and Climate Change at Telefonica and Emilie Wedell-Wedellsborg, Director of Sustainability at TDC Group will share insights on best business practices.

Interested in joining us? Request to attend the workshop at this link.
