Dr Peter Götz, APPLiA President
Europe and the world have been going through an unprecedented period brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, impacting on our lives at every level. Priorities had to be reshuffled to ensure that the safety and well being of our workers and their families came first. Nevertheless, our sector has worked tirelessly to make sure our commitment to a better and greener Europe was not put aside. This report sums up the outcome of our efforts as an industry and is another step in the right direction.
