European conference CO2, Industry and Regions

The aforementioned held the first “CO2, industry and regions day” in 2019 on the basis of an observation: our response to tackling climate change, preserving the environment and maintaining a competitive industrial fabric that provides jobs can only emerge out of multi-stakeholder discussions that take place on a local level.

Following the success of this first conference, the organisers would like to give a European dimension to this event by bringing together on 8 October 2020 representatives from European industrial regions, national, European and international bodies responsible for industrial transition, site managers, solution providers, highereducation institutions and researchers around six main areas:

  • the procurement of carbon-free raw materials and energy sources,
  • decarbonisation and process efficiency,
  • innovative carbon capture, use and storage solutions,
  • integrated regional experiments (regional industrial ecology),
  • carbon regulations and taxation,
  • innovation support schemes.

  • Littoral Hauts de France chamber of commerce and industry
