By 2050, Europe aims to become the first climate-neutral continent in the world – an ambitious “Man on the Moon” project that requires unprecedented cooperation between politics, society and business across national borders and at the same time offers great opportunities for German companies. In the final phase of Germany’s EU Presidency, we focused on this issue at our first annual digital conference: How will the “European Green Deal” become a growth project?

Over 650 participants from all over Europe tuned in live to our bilingual annual conference. Here you can find the videos with all contributions to the conference.
