It’s our privilege to invite you to a discussion roundtable organized jointly by Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers, European Enterprise Alliance, SME Connect and Energetyka 24.
As part of the Energy Forum, ZPP actively participates in shaping the direction of development of the Polish energy sector. Together with our partners and members, we undertake strategic legislative initiatives aimed at effective energy transformation.
