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.
