As we emerge from the pandemic, we are invited to actively play a leading role in co-shaping a new vision for the EU.

What is certain is that Europe’s future is closely linked to the future of its industry: strong ambitions require strong and innovative companies that have the means to meet the needs of the digital and green transitions while boosting EU competitiveness. 

This is why the Employers' Group decided to organise its flagship event in the context of the ongoing CoFoE tackling these topics with a number of innovative company representatives, and with the special participation of Herman Van Rompuy, President Emeritus of the European Council.

Digital and green transitions: contradictory or complementary? The consumer viewpoint

In making their choices, consumers cannot always take into account the digital dimension and the ecological dimension at the same time. A young consumer who would be tempted to replace his mobile phone every year to keep up with digital developments cannot at the same time take into account the environmental impact of the transport of devices often coming from Asia.
