Michael Meadowcroft (Michael Meadowcroft)The speakers will tackle the issues of Social Responsibility of Business in the emerging economic recovery phase after the pandemic lockdown. Working with a "New Normal" attempting to improve the environment to match the expectations we have after the lockdown. The lockdown brought cleaner air, lower fossil fuel use and other potential silver linings to an otherwise dreadful situation.
