Event invitation “Building back better: Financing the transition towards low-carbon economy”

The EU is aiming to become climate-neutral in 2050. With this respect the 2030 climate targets have increased stirring a debate especially in Central Europe. In the same time, the post-Covid recovery represents an immense challenge and even a bigger opportunity to move towards a low carbon economy and society.
