NEW BEGINNINGS, NEW ADVENTURES: FEBRUARY OVERVIEW
You know there is a saying “The secret of getting ahead is getting started” and we aspire to that always.
We seek for new opportunities but along side enjoy all of our projects we’re working on every day.
This first two months of this year passed by so fast, but we experienced amazing new things and business adventures, so here is a little overview of the key topics we covered online.
As you scroll throughout our social media, you could notice that we like to covered topics that are connected to the EU or the USA regulations or projects, but our services also. We talk about the different EU projects and various opportunities which are possible to apply to for everyone – and you have to know that for that part, we are always available.
One of our services is a management of the EU projects – we provide a full service for our clients.
We encompass follow-up and recognition of funding opportunities suitable for your business, prepare the project documentation, additional amendments and corrections, if necessary. At the end, we do a complete management and monitoring of the project.
Definitely something that is a big part of our work is GDPR and data privacy. So, from time to time, we always like to share some tip and tricks on that topic too.
Of course, every 28th of January we mark the Data Protection Day. Before the pandemic we enjoyed going to the conferences to seek and received new knowledge about that topic. But, this year we marked it online with the small reminders to prioritize some good cyber security.
Something you know about us for sure is the fact that we’re always on the “team green”.
Last month we talked about something it’s called „greenwashing”? Did you hear about that?
Attempts to make consumers believe that an undertaking is doing more to protect the environment than it really is are called ‘greenwashing’.
Recently, the European Commission revealed that half of green claims lack evidence. In over 40% of such instances, it is believed that the claims made may be regarded as false or deceptive and may therefore be a potential case of unfair commercial practice under EU law.
Insofar as greenwashing and trade mark protection are concerned, the EU trade mark legislation prohibits the registration of signs which are of such a nature as to deceive the public.
Related to this, it is also important to recall that the misleading use of a trade mark can result in the revocation of a trade mark registration.
Furthermore, we talked about the progress of the EU about the fighting climate change. One of the EU goals is to reduce greenhouse gases.
- The EU targets for 2020 were set out in the climate and energy package adopted in 2008. One of its objectives was a 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 levels.
- EU emissions in 2020 were a 31% lower than in 1990.
- Research shows that in 2019 emission decreased 24% compared to 1990 levels.
- So, there was a large drop in EU greenhouse gas emissions between 2019 and 2020, and it's strongly related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The EU emission target for 2030 is at least a 55% reduction compared to 1990 levels.
Now, we have to wait for an upcoming package of new and revised legislation known as Fit for 55 – which aims to deliver the European Green Deal objectives and make Europe a climate-neutral continent by 2050.
We’re preparing some interesting themes for you within our “Keep up”. So, stay tuned!
