COP24: the takeaways for Europe

COP24: the takeaways for Europe

Tuesday, 29 January 2019
Permanent Representation of the Netherlands to the EU, Avenue de Cortenbergh 4-10, 1040 Brussels

Already referred to as "Paris 2.0", the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP24) is taking place in Katowice in December 2018 with the plan to adopt a full package implementing the Paris Agreement. What will be the main COP24 takeaways for Europe? How will they impact the EU's strategy for long-term emission reductions? And knowing that transport emissions are such an important part of the climate problem, how can rail help be part of the climate solution?

Join us on 29 January 2019 as we explore these questions and more during an event co-organised with NS and kindly hosted by the Dutch Permanent Representation to the EU.

We are delighted to have DG CLIMA Director Artur Runge-Metzger to kick off the event with a debrief from COP24. We will also hear from NS CEO Roger van Boxtel on the role railways should play, including some inspiring green initiatives implemented by NS, and continue the discussion in a high-level panel debate including the European Commission, European Parliament and rail sector representatives.

Further details will be provided soon. Meanwhile, you can already register below.
