1st GreenTech Innovation Breakfast 2019

Challenges and solutions to boost the green economy

March 8th 2018

Hotel Union, Ljubljana

In 2018, CER designed a series of activities entitled GreenTech Innovation, with the aim of strengthening measures for promoting green economy, which is a response to sustainable development and climate-energy challenges.

Green economy
, an environmentally-friendly economy, is becoming an increasingly important mission and business goal of companies and organizations. Global commitments to greater energy efficiency, clean energy use and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions promote the development of technological innovations and new business models.

Therefore, in the near future we can expect that green economy will result in numerous changes, while having a strong impact on the transformation of companies, organizations, society and, ultimately, on countries. Faster and more efficient changes also urgently require a coordinated and stimulating "green” functioning of policies and measures.

The purpose of the event is to:
  • connect different players, who may positively impact a better development strategy and multiplicative effects of green circular economy, green investments in Slovenia and internationally;
  • highlight a coordinated and support functioning of various policies for development of green economy; and
  • constructive discussion on how to achieve energy climate objectives in cooperation with the economy so that we won’t have to pay EU penalties for failing to meet air pollution targets.

Invitation sent to: CER members, company executives, representatives from the academic and research community, representatives of economic interest groups, representatives of municipalities – mayors and directors of municipal bodies, ambassadors, interested public, media representatives.
