Sustainability is a growing concern for governments, corporations, and civil society. Leading economies such as China and the European Union have announced ambitious carbon neutrality targets and action plans to tackle climate change. At the corporate level, a growing number of enterprises have strengthened their corporate social responsibility guidelines by setting up clear improvement goals towards sustainability. With the necessity to execute corporate guidelines at the China level and the directives of the Chinese Government in the context of the 14th Five-Year Plan, companies are starting to implement sustainability strategies.

On 15 June 2023, the EU SME Centre and European Union Chamber of Commerce in China are organising a webinar to provide concrete case studies on SMEs in China. During this event, experts from TERAO will guide you with practical steps towards carbon reduction achievements in China. They will share their insights on how companies can make their facilities more sustainable and reduce their environmental footprint. They will explain how to minimise carbon emissions in buildings with the real cases they implemented for EU SMEs in China.

The webinar will be held in English and will be open, free of charge, to all interested SMEs from European Union Member States and countries participating in the Single Market Programme.
