ECCT establishes Energy Transition & Sustainability Team

The ECCT is pleased to announce the completion of the transition to a new Energy Transition and Sustainability Team within the chamber and the revitalisation of the chamber’s Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) and Family Friendly Alliance (FFA) best practice platforms with a view towards enhancing the internal coordination, external cooperation and overall effectiveness of the chamber. The restructuring follows the completion of an internal process of clarifying and redefining the roles of the Low Carbon Initiative (LCI) and Family Friendly Alliance (FFA) best practice platforms and ECCT committees and refining certain roles and functions within the ECCT secretariat.  

Putting these three entities under the same team is designed to ensure consistency, harmony and cross-committee alignment and engagement among the three entities and enable a stronger focus on the variety of topics and issues related to the energy transition and sustainability in the future.
