amfori Sustainable Trade Forum



Time: 16:00 until 19:00

Location: Brussels, Belgium

Venue: Thon Hotel EU 


We are pleased to invite you to join the upcoming amfori Sustainable Trade Forum: Harnessing the potential of sustainable trade in the new EU term. This will take place on the 21st January in Brussels.

The Forum will be an opportunity to discuss the topics of our EU policy agenda.

At amfori, we celebrate the holistic relationship between trade and sustainability. Our central belief is that trade must be value-based. Apart from providing economic development, trade must be a driver for social and environmental progress, all along the supply chain. These principles are what we call “Trade with Purpose”.

For questions, please contact Kathy Roussel – Policy & Governmental Affairs Manager.
