Workshop Title: Sustainability: the way forward for Business

As European and global economy navigates a landscape shaped by ever-evolving laws, market demands, and sustainability imperatives, the pressure on businesses and especially start-ups to adapt has never been greater. New regulations such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), the EU Taxonomy, and the Green Claims Directive, coupled with market push and shifting market dynamics, underscore the urgent need for proactive sustainability management strategies.

All these create challenges: maintaining compliance, meeting market expectations, and securing funding and investments.

As laws evolve and market trends rapidly shift, it's crucial to remain at the forefront. The fast-paced nature of the green shift is challenging but creates opportunities for businesses that have the knowledge and are bold and innovative to adapt fast to the new environment and embrace sustainability as an inherent part of their development.
