Europe successfully designed a sustainable 2030 framework, taking into consideration the three main objectives: security and stability of energy supply; globally cost/competitive energy prices and environmental aspects to tackle negative externalities. EU leaders agreed in March 2014 to decide on the framework in October 2014. Throughout these months, they have to face one of the most significant geopolitical challenges in our age of time: energy security. Disruptions in energy supply can have far-ranging consequences for consumers and businesses, and they are, as such, a very effective political tool.

Join us during this EU Committee Business Lunch, where Mr. Tomasz Husak, Deputy Head of Permanent Representation, Permanent Representative of Poland, will deepen the themes of sustainability, competitiveness and security of supply, in the light of the new Europe’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework.
