2019 represents the “Year of Change” for the European Union (a new European Parliament, a new political leadership for the European Commission, and the formal departure of the UK as a member of the EU).
With the European elections coming up in 2019, Senior Vice President and Director of Public Affairs, Teresa Calvano, notes what environmental issues you should have on your radar.
Climate policy and circular economy are set to be huge buzzwords and topics of discussion in the coming year. The EU will come forward with its strategy for achieving the Paris CO2 emission reductions and set plans on how to balance waste management with a mainstream push to move towards a circular economy.
Calvano advises on what these key moves in 2019 will entail, how they will affect businesses and what is necessary to proactively prepare.
While the new elections may not be for another year, that doesn’t mean that you can afford to wait to start engaging and influencing. Read more about our #FHYearofChange video series and stay tuned for more insights from the FleishmanHillard team!
