This webcast is part of The Conference Board Director General Series. A series of briefings with senior officials from the EU Commission. Our guest speaker for the December webcast is Director General for Environment, Karl Falkenberg. 

Mr. Falkenberg will provide an overview of policies and plans in the environment policy pipeline, focusing in particular on the Commission's soon-to-be-adopted proposal for a Seventh EU Environment Action Programme, which will cover the period up to 2020.

The programme will focus on the contribution of environment policy to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, pulling together various recent initiatives, including on resource efficiency, biodiversity and the low-carbon economy, into a coherent narrative and showing how they relate to and reinforce one another, and point to a limited number of gaps that need to be filled.
