Climate changes in the world in recent years have brought humanity to focus more on sustainable, green production. Leaving a healthy and livable world for future generations has risen to the top of the agenda of the world.

Aegean Exporters’ Associations, aiming to export 15 billion dollars in 2021 with green production, will organize “EIB Sustainability Days”. The training programme, which will start online on January 12, 2021, will be free and open to the participation of all exporting companies.

Stating that they declared 2020 as “Sustainability Year”, Aegean Exporters’ Associations Coordinator Chairman Jak Eskinazi said, “We realised many projects related to sustainability in 2020.

Therefore, we aim for our exporting companies to produce in accordance with the European Green Agreement. We organized ‘EIB Sustainability Days’ in order to increase the sustainability competencies of more than 8 thousand exporters of our Aegean Exporters’ Associations. As we said in the sustainability manifest we published previously, we will continue our work with the slogan ‘For a sustainable world, sustainable production and sustainable export’,” Eskinazi concluded…
