Priorities for the Swedish Presidency of the EU
Sweden recently took over the Presidency of the Council of the EU at a time when EU legislators face numerous issues, such as the economic consequences of the conflict in Ukraine, the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, and the legislative progress toward the EU green transition. One of the main priorities of the Swedish Presidency, which began on 1 January 2023, is to tackle high and volatile energy prices while continuing to work towards the green transition and further implementing the agenda on the European Green Deal.
Join this free webinar to hear from policymakers, policy experts, and industry practitioners on the priorities the Swedish Presidency is expected to address, and challenges and opportunities on current and future legislation on sustainable finance.
