COVID-19. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Energy and cost-of-living crisis. Impacts of climate change. Upskilling imperative for a green and digital economy. Challenges to the social dimension of the EU’s sustainability agenda abound.
Ahead of the 2024 European elections, CSR Europe and Globescan are bringing together frontrunning companies for the first Sustainability Leadership Salon of the year to explore the setup of an alliance for action between business leaders, European policymakers, and stakeholders to advance a Just Transition in Europe.
The event will take place in Brussels on 27th April, and explore the case for an EU Social Green Deal 2024-2029 that requires simultaneously:
Business leadership which -beyond a compliance led approach on sustainability – engage their company to peers, industry sectors, policymakers, investors, and civil society to build joint solutions and drive system change across their local and global eco-systems.
The outcome of this discussion will be tested at the 2023 CSR Europe Conference, taking place in Brussels on the 20th of June. The business proposal will then be adapted and discussed at the second Sustainability Leadership Salon on the 14th of November. The final policy paper will be presented to the new European Commission, European Parliament, and EU governments in 2024.
