The green transition marks one of two pillars of the EU’s industrial strategy to ensure future competitiveness of its industries on a global market. It summarises the journey towards a climate neutral, cleaner, and more circular EU economy. In order to reach the goals, European businesses have an important role to play. On one hand, they have to work on reducing their own negative environmental impact, e.g., emissions, material and energy use. On the other hand, they should use their practical knowledge and innovative capacity to accelerate the green transition by providing affordable, clean technology solutions and by developing new business models.

To support businesses in these endeavours, the “Green Transition Support” service provided the European Cluster Collaboration Platform offers practical examples, tools and useful points of contact to promote greener practices. In the EU Clusters Talk “Green Transition Support: Energy and resource efficiency in EU businesses” on 29 November 2023, 8:30 – 9:45 CET, the ECCP team presented the support service and we learnt first-hand about green practices presented by frontrunners from different sectors.

Speakers included:

  • Sarianne Tikkanen, Policy Officer, DG ENV, European Commission.
  • Mirabela Lupaescu, Policy Officer, DG ENV, European Commission.
  • Jannis Lambert, Prognos, team member of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform.
  • Adam Priechodský, Project Manager, Autoklastr.
  • Ander Elgorriaga Kunze, Strategy and Innovation Head, Ihobe - Basque Environmental Agency.
  • Fabrizio Guarrasi, European Project Manager, Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster.
  • Rita Moura, President, Cluster AEC.

This event is part of regular online meetings brought to the cluster community by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform. They offer up-to-date insights into the latest industrial policies and clusters’ involvement, projects, and best practices, the latest ECCP news, and funding opportunities. The EU Clusters Talks are a space to exchange knowledge and to discuss cluster-relevant topics, which will change with every meeting.
