As an official, EU Green Week, Partner Event, Global Sustain and the European Sustainability Academy (ESA) are co-organizing the “Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Day”, to be held on May 10, 2019 at the ANEK Lines Conference Center in Chania, Crete.
This event launches a full EU Green Week programme and aims to inform a wide range of people about practical environmental actions in Corporate Responsibility and Sustainable Development with a focus on the agri-food, tourism, transport and energy sectors.
The effects of climate change have been particularly evident in Crete recently. Responsible management of natural resources, infrastructure and energy has a huge and immediate impact on our lives. It is more necessary than ever to raise awareness of sustainable development, particularly in areas that strengthen the local economy and improve our quality of life.
The event is open to all professionals, organizations and businesses. Representatives of the European Commission and Parliament, political leadership and local government (Ministries, Regions, Municipalities), chambers, scientific and research institutions, institutions etc. are expected to take part.
The conference is under the auspices of the European Commission, the Region of Crete, the Municipality of Chania and the Technical Chamber of Greece and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania.

About the European Sustainability Academy (ESA)
The European Sustainability Academy (ESA), is the first of its kind to be built in Europe, as an off-grid, natural materials, biophilia designed, seminar and management training center on the Greek island of Crete. It is an international center for Sustainable Enterprise and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with a focus on training and research in leadership and management of sustainable business. This unique and beautiful example of sustainable architecture is powered only by renewable source energy from the Cretan sun. To provide an immersive sustainability learning experience, the site was carefully chosen in a EU Natura 2000 protected area, magnificent ancient olive grove of 8 acres in the Cretan mountain village of Drapanos. ESA clients come from across the globe from sectors including tourism, energy, waste management and construction as well as circular economy entrepreneurship and innovation. https://eurosustainability.org/
