During the SPCC session at this year's European Economic Congress in Katowice, the SPCC Report "On the GREEN WAY: Polish-Scandinavian cooperation on the way to green transformation" was launched.
The report presents a wide range of cooperation between the Nordic countries and Poland, outlines the perspectives for developing economic relations between the partners, and shows the approach of Scandinavian companies to the implementation of sustainable development strategies.

The geopolitical situation and the war in Ukraine have come up in all energy-related discussions.
- Despite the difficult geopolitical circumstances,  it is promising to see we are not alone in this situation. Our Scandinavian partners want to engage in developing the energy sector and support local Polish partners in implementing new technologies and the circular economy model.
This partnership means credibility, trust, knowledge and experience, including the difficult ones, allowing us to avoid mistakes we no longer have time to make. - Agnieszka Zielińska, managing director of the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce, emphasised this in her speech preceding the panel discussion.
