The CEEC President, Agnete Skytte, also held a brief presentation on the development of the CO2 reporting at European level.
CEEC held a workshop to discuss the development of the various project work. There was also the possibility to visit the UNTEC exhibitor stands as well as to attend technical seminars arranged by UNTEC. The 86th CEEC General Assembly was also held. This included discussing the emerging plans for our next gathering in London on 15 – 17 June 2023 and deciding on the various projects to be taken forward.
