In the next couple of months, the #SustainabilityDialogues will be zeroing in on: Finance & Investing, more specifically, how banks are supporting the Green economy and the sustainable financing solutions they provide; Materials & Packaging including how to develop new materials and packaging solutions for different industry sectors; and Bioprocesses & Technologies, looking at how to drive advances in synthetic biology and industrial biotech forward to implement new ways of bioprocessing.

With this year’s EFIB we aim to provide a platform to shed light on the role bio-based innovation can play with regard to implementing the European Green Deal and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of a green recovery.
