The coronavirus pandemic has triggered the biggest economic recession since the Great Depression of 1929. The European Union and developed countries have launched emergency plans to lay the foundations for a speedy recovery. This week the partner countries of the European Union (EU) have reached a historic agreement to allocate more than 750,000 million euros to the recovery and transformation of the European economies, of which Spain will receive 140,000 million between direct aid and credits.
The recovery will come hand in hand with greater public-private collaboration in which companies with sustainability models based on fight against climate change They will have greater advantages compared to those that do not try to find solutions to decarbonization. So, Which sectors will lead the economic recovery? How to promote the efficient use of resources? To what extent will European aid contribute to the recovery and transformation of the Spanish economy? Which companies will contribute the most to decarbonisation and, therefore, to growth? How will they achieve the investment?
These are some of the questions that we will try to answer in the ABC Forum on Sustainable Economy which will take place on next Wednesday, July 29, from 10 to 11 in the morning, moderated by the deputy director of ABC Yolanda Gomez. An event that will continue live at abc.es/foroeconomiasostenibleas well as asking questions to the speakers through the hashtag # ForoABCEconomíaSustainable.
The experts who will participate in the debate are a representative of Drives; the Director General of the Treasury and Financial Policy of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Pablo de Ramón-Laca; the director of the Office in Spain of the ILO (International Labor Organization), Joaquín Nieto; the executive director of the Spanish Global Compact Network, Cristina Sánchez, and the partner in charge of the AFI (Applied Financial Analysts) Area of Applied Economics, Diego Vizcaíno.
