While the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, the other major crisis of climate change continues to loom. To deal with that, the European Union (EU) has launched the Green Deal for Europe, aiming to make the EU economy circular, green and climate neutral by 2050.
What is in the European Green Deal? What does it mean for businesses? Which opportunities does it create? How can the EU partner with Indonesia and other countries in Southeast Asia?

While governments are focused on addressing the health ramifications of the COVID-19 crisis as their first priority, the wider climate and sustainability crises have not disappeared. In fact, greater sustainability can be an important part of the solution to the crisis.
The European Green Deal is the roadmap for making the EU's economy sustainable. This will happen by turning climate and environmental challenges into opportunities across all policy areas and making the transition just and inclusive for all.
Mr Samsom, Head of the Private Office of the European Commission Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans, will present the EU Green Deal and how the continent should answer to the COVID-19 crisis by accelerating efforts towards climate neutrality and the relevance for the relations with Indonesia and the ASEAN region.
Mr Wibowo, who is also Head for Sustainable Development in Eurocham Indonesia will share Danone’s and Eurocham member companies’ experience with Sustainable Development.
Ms Kamdani will provide the view of the Indonesian business community on the opportunities provided by the EU Green Deal.
The Chairperson of EuroCham Indonesia, Ms Corine Tap, will conclude the event.
The webinar will be moderated by the EU Ambassador to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam, H.E. Vincent Piket.
