Porto Convention 2022

This requires “smart” legislation, innovation in new technologies, changing consumer behaviour, and global environmental and social commitments. The Convention will look at how companies can anticipate this new regulatory framework, embrace new technologies, and develop a business model where sustainability becomes a source of competitiveness and growth.
