11th Annual Capital Link Sustainability Forum

Online


This year’s Forum title is: “Tackling Social & Economic Transformation / Sustainable Growth: Environment - Economy - Society”.

With the covid reality as a preamble and having left behind an admittedly challenging year for the global community and the economy, we are here today ready to face the new year with a renewed sense of optimism and certainty. This new perspective is created by the accelerated digital transformation and the transition to the digital economy, and is predicated on the assessment that these conditions will strengthen the global economic activity and allow for a return to growth.

The use of EUR 70 billion funds that Greece will receive from the Recovery and Resilience Facility in the form of subsidies and low-interest loans, in key sectors such as renewable energy, tourism, transport and the agri-food sector, is a decisive step towards the consolidated transition of the economic system towards sustainable growth model, with the banking sector playing a key role in effectively tackling climate change and adopting a new growth model.

This year’s Capital Link Sustainability Forum examines how each sector contributes to this transformation in the best way to benefit the Greek Economy and Society.
