2: Umweltpolitik und Wettbewerbsfähigkeit

-
CCA Liechtenstein
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

Using climate policy as an example, this working group aims to investigate the relationship between sustainable environmental policy and the competitiveness of business locations (especially Europe) from various perspectives. Our discussions will cover developments in the US and new scientific approaches as well as a comprehensive review of the underlying energy policy circumstances in Europe and throughout the world. In this context, climate and energy policy have to be examined jointly and must include the topics of reliability of supply, energy efficiency and new environmental technologies. This should illustrate the idea that that a strong economy will promote job creation as well as social and ecological measures, which will in turn ensure sustainable development and social cohesion.
