The EESC has six sections, specialising in concrete topics of relevance to the citizens of the European Union, ranging from social to economic affairs, energy, environment, external relations or the internal market.
Employer representatives from 27 countries are in Luleå to discuss the conditions for the green transition, sustainable growth and the EU's new competitiveness agenda on 19–20 June.
The success of the historical transitions we are facing will ultimately depend on how well businesses and the economy as a whole will operate in the changing ecosystems. Only by being a world leader in innovation and sustainability can Europe successfully compete globally and create the necessary prosperity.
Together with experts from academia and the business world the EESC Employers’ Group will discuss how energy-intensive industries and the construction sector can be a vital parts of the green transition.
