Save the Date: EU-U.S. Trade and Technology Council Event on the Green Transatlantic Marketplace in Washington, D.C.

12/06/2023

January 30-31, 2024

To support transatlantic cooperation for easier, greener, and safer trade, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages relevant stakeholders to attend an EU-U.S. Trade and Technology Council (TTC) event that will solicit input on the Transatlantic Initiative on Sustainable Trade (TIST) Work Programme.

Launched at the TTC ministerial meeting in May, the TIST program serves to build a structured and long-lasting bilateral engagement to promote a more “integrated and resilient transatlantic marketplace that will help accelerate the transition to a climate neutral and circular economy to the benefit of businesses, workers, and consumers on both sides of the Atlantic.” Read more about TIST.

The TTC event, “Crafting the Transatlantic Green Marketplace,” to be held on January 30-31 in Washington, D.C. (hybrid option TBC), is an opportunity to provide input on how the TIST can achieve its climate and circular economy objectives.

The TTC has published a tentative agenda, including:

  • An evening reception on January 30, 2024
  • Welcome remarks by EU and U.S. TTC principals
  • A moderated plenary session with high-level EU and U.S. participants
  • Thematic breakout sessions on TIST-related issues

Registration is expected to open shortly; contact [email protected] with any inquiries.
