Understanding and Working Within the EU Green Deal

With the successful implementation of the EU Green Deal, Europe will be the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. With bold plans to cut emissions by over 55% by 2030, the produce industry supplying Europe will have to understand and work within these policies and regulations to remain compliant and profitable.

In this series, EU Green Deal experts will help PMA members understand our industry's impact now and in the future, as similar initiatives are implemented in the US and other countries.

Session 2: Retail & Demand Perspectives
