Online Discussion on Climate Law

On the basis of the Memorandum of Cooperation recently signed between the Institute for Sustainable Development of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO / ISD) and the Competitiveness Council of Greece (CompeteGr), the two bodies co-organize, in the context of a public dialogue cycle which has been initiated since April, an online discussion on June 9, 2021 at 15.00-17.00 on "Climate Law: Preparing the Economy and Society for Change" with the aim of exchanging views between institutions and the business and academic community.

In view of all the recent developments and the Covid-19 pandemic, the competitiveness of countries, their regions and their businesses touches upon three fundamental pillars: productivity, the planet and the people. The EU envisions and legislates in favor of The European Green Agreement, whether it is large and public companies or SMEs. Following the relevant agreement at a European level, many countries, including Greece, are preparing to adopt a framework law that will concern Climate Change and the harmonization of the economy based on international competitive standards.

The proposed provisions for the Greek Climate Law, which is being prepared following the reaching of an agreement at a European level, and in view of the 26th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Glasgow in November 2021, will be discussed. Climate Law will have to go far beyond simply transposing European legislation into national law: it essentially provides an opportunity to redesign the country's institutional and legislative map to meet the challenges and changes posed by Climate Change for the next 20 years. -30 years.

The discussion will be in Greek.
