Industrial leadership & future of the fragrance industry in France and Europe - Resilience, Green & Digital transition

Grasse - France 10 February 2022 - 10:30am (GMT +01:00) Theme: Resilience

Join us virtually in Grasse (France), the World Capital of Perfume! The fragrance industry supports the aims of the EU Green Deal to address the climate crisis and transform the EU’s economy for a sustainable future. The fragrance industry is a sector boasting cutting-edge innovation, with European companies leading the world in using state-of-the-art technologies and techniques to produce extraordinary scents that enrich our daily lives. The pandemic showed the resilience, ingenuity and adaptability of Europe’s fragrance industry. In the early days of the pandemic, fragrance manufacturers delivered vital products including hydro-alcoholic gels used in hospitals, care homes and elsewhere. They also played an essential role in the supply chain for sanitary, hygiene and disinfecting products when these products were most needed. The fragrance industry is also a valuable and distinctive expression of Europe's heritage and culture. From the lavender fields of Provence to Bulgaria’s Rose Valley, the fragrance also gives many regions their identity and is a source of prosperity and socio-economic local development. The skills developed in these areas are part of Europe’s rich history – and a key element of its innovative future. The pandemic highlighted the need to accelerate the transition towards a cleaner, more digital, and more resilient economic and industrial model, driving Europe towards sustainable competitiveness and looking ahead on Europe’s youth future. The 1st panel discussion (10:30-11:40 CET) will focus on the resilience of the fragrance industry, while the 2nd panel discussion (11:50-13:00 CET) will be on the green and digital transition for the fragrance industry.

Energy savings in buildings: Czechia on the verge of renovation wave

Prague - Czech Republic 10 February 2022 - 4:00pm (GMT +01:00) Theme: The green and digital transition

On 15 December 2021, the European Commission presented a recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. This responds to the need to adapt to EU's more ambitious climate targets and builds on the "renovation wave" strategy, which aims to step up renovation efforts across the EU. In the revised Directive, the Commission proposes that new buildings should be zero-emission from 2030, while giving Member States the option to ban the use of fossil fuels in buildings, and no financial incentives should be provided for the installation of fossil fuel boilers from 2027. The proposal also supports the deployment of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in buildings and modifies the rules for issuing energy performance certificates. What amount of energy cost savings can the renovation wave bring in the Czech Republic? What kind of support can be obtained for building renovation in the Czech Republic? Under what conditions will it be possible to use fossil fuels in buildings?
