European Green Deal – What’s in it for Sweden and Swedish business?

Welcome to this breakfast seminar on the European Green Deal, the EU's new growth strategy. Among other things, we will discuss:
What does the European Green Deal mean for climate change and as a net-zero emission engine? In what way will the European Green Deal be able to stimulate investment in sustainable solutions and technologies? How is geopolitics affected – how will China and the US act? Does the EGD stimulate new business models - what is missing to further increase the ambition? How can we use the EGD in Sweden to give the ongoing transformation in energy and circular economy a boost?

The seminar is held in English and is a collaboration between the Haga Initiative and the research program Mistra Geopolitics.
