Sugaronline Sugar Rush webinar—The European Green Deal
Sugaronline is proud to present the latest installment of its live webinar series—"Sugar Rush"— where together with Marie-Christine Ribera of CEFS, Job Jan Simmelink of the Cosun Beet Company and Emily Rees of UNICA we'll get deep into the issues of Europe's Green Deal and how it impacts the European sugar market.

In this free, 45-minute webinar, we'll discuss what it is, the major pitfalls and loopholes, and how it will impact the European sugar industry. Launched in December 2019, the Green Deal is meant to completely pivot the European economy, touching every sector across all 27 countries. And with the focus on a green recovery from COVID-19, there's a lot of opportunity and just a few challenges for European sugar. You won't want to miss this event! Make sure to bring your questions about the European Green Deal and its impacts so you can pick the brain of the leading experts in this interactive event, the only one of its kind in the global sugar industry.
