Transformation as an opportunity or baggage? Janez Potočnik, co-Chair of the International Resource Panel, United Nations Environment Programme, says the future will be green or there will be no future.
He also shares his thoughts on one of the main BSF takeaways this year, and that is EUCO President Charles Michel statement on EU enlargement: “As we prepare the EU’s next strategic agenda, we must set ourselves a clear goal. I believe we must be ready — on both sides — to enlarge by 2030.”
JANEZ POTOČNIK – Partner at SYSTEMIQ, Co-Chair of the International Resource Panel, United Nations Environment Programme, and advisor to thought-leading institutions such as the European Forest Institute. Before, he was European Commissioner for the Environment and European Commissioner for Science and Research.
