Paving the way for a resilient and environmentally conscious SME landscape

Green and digital transitions can reinforce each other, being the two trends that will shape the future of the European Union. Taking an integrated approach to the challenges of reaching successful twin transitions is essential to avoid the traps of pushing two agendas separately. The green and digital transitions run in parallel, but blending them allows us to benefit from synergies and reduce the risks.

This working group is a collaborative platform designed to empower SMEs in navigating the complex landscape of digitalisation, mobility, and education for sustainable and resilient growth. Within this pivotal decade for climate action, SMEs are important players in addressing the climate emergency. Digital solutions have the potential to reduce global emissions by up to 20%, as highlighted by the World Economic Forum. Our working group aims to empower SME leaders to seamlessly integrate digital advancements with sustainability goals, paving the way for a resilient and environmentally conscious SME landscape. Together, let’s explore innovative pathways that amplify the potential of SMEs in driving a sustainable and digitally empowered future.

In an era marked by ongoing digital transition, SMEs stand at the precipice of a profound journey that could shape their trajectory and foster sustainable growth. At this working group, the goal is to unravel the complexities and potentials of the digital transition, sustainable mobility, and educational initiatives. Together, we aim to chart a course that not only future-proofs SMEs but also contributes to a more sustainable, resilient, and digitally empowered business landscape.
