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, FleishmanHillard Advisory Board Member, Chris Davies, encourages businesses to prepare now for the upcoming changes in the EU.
For Davies, while a lot has been made in terms of developing renewable energy in Europe, businesses need to put forward proposals for achieving the same objectives politicians and scientists want to achieve in terms of climate policy to effectively stop climate change. If Europe wants to continue to be a leader in this area, it has to set long-term goals that will support the significant emission reductions that need to be made.
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!
