In 2020, China made the pledge to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. Since then, environmental protection and green development have become high priorities for the entire country. Consequently, government procurement as a tool to support green and low-carbon development has recently been ramped up, while other environmental policies have been implemented. European SMEs may wonder what opportunities China’s environmental policies offer.

On 20 December, the EU SME Centre, in collaboration with ICCF and the Belgian-Chinese Economic and Commercial Council (BCECC), is organising a webinar on China’s environmental blueprint & its opportunities for European SMEs, to discuss how China’s environmental policies work and how European SMEs can make them work for their business.

This webinar will provide you an overview of existing and upcoming regulations on ESG and Carbon Management in China and Europe and point to specific solutions. You will learn what you need to comply in 2023 and beyond and gain insight in opportunities that come along. Attendees will also receive a copy of the new “Internet of Sustainability Data” White Paper, which explains “the Big 3 of Systems Change” and exponential growth opportunity for companies with decarbonisation technologies.

This free event is open to all SMEs from EU Member States and countries participating in the Single Market Programme. The webinar will be held in English.
