CANCELLED - Journée de l’Economie - Climate crisis: are we turning the corner? A shift for Luxembourg’s economy.

The Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, the Chamber of Commerce of Luxembourg and FEDIL, in cooperation with PwC Luxembourg, will host the next "Journée de l'Economie" conference on the 16th of March 2020.

The event is titiled "Climate crisis: are we turning the corner? A crucial shift for Luxembourg's economy".

This year, the conference brings together leading names from the worlds of business, academia and politics to discuss and debate critical climate change issues and their impact on the economy and industry as a whole.

The topic will be tackled through three different lenses:

  • Global lens: a review of challenges and impacts related to climate change worldwide and the urgent need to adapt international policies and companies' business models to promote a more sustainable economy, while not forgetting the significant international cooperation challenges that any response poses.

  • European lens: what are the new European Commission's ambitions and what actions can be undertaken to tackle climate change? What opportunities will the Green Deal bring?

  • Luxembourgish lens: with a specific focus on the concrete impact on our local economy and industry, but also a look at how the country can and should play a leading role in sustainable finance.

LuxFLAG's Chairwoman Denise Voss will give a speech on sustainable finance at 12:00.
