At the end of 2019 the EC declared ambitious aim for Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, slowing down global heating and mitigating its effects. Sure enough, these processes will reflect on the sustainable development of SE Europe, which will speed up the investments in the following areas: environment, climate and digitalization.
In the context of these processes Via Expo organizes seeSUSTAINtec (7-9 April, Sofia) – the only international exhibition and forum in Bulgaria for Waste Management & Recycling, Energy Efficiency, Renewables, Air Quality, Smart Cities. Sustainable solutions will be presented as a profitable business and a rewarding investment. International companies are looking for distributors and investors, while the industry, municipalities, and end consumers are aiming to decrease their carbon footprint and to improve their competitiveness. The organizer is expecting a growing visitor interest (in 2019, 21% of the visitors came from abroad, 71% from Bulgaria). Dr. Goran Vujić, ISWA Board Member, announced that the association will have very dynamic meetings during the event.
