VIENNA, 1 October 2020 - The Director General LI Yong had a bilateral discussion with Gerhard Hrebicek, President of the European Brand Institute (EBI), to discuss next steps in the cooperation between UNIDO and EBI in support of branding for sustainability. In an economy that is increasingly digitalised and slowly recovers from COVID-19, brands can play an important role for an accelerated economic recovery across the globe. Expanding UNIDO’s and EBI’s branding activities globally could therefore contribute to swift economic recovery and achieve sustainable growth. On this occasion, the signed Memorandum of Understanding has been exchanged, which has been delayed due to COVID-19.
Das lud zum Sustainable Brand Talk sowie zur Verleihung des 11. Brand [Life] Awards ins Novomatic Forum.
Unter der Leitung von Gerhard haben sechs erstklassige Experten, wie Raphaela HBC Austria, Herbert Österreich, Michele , Gabriela Maria Österreich AG, Stefan , Christoph , diskutiert, warum eine nachhaltige Marke wichtiger denn je ist und wo noch Aufholbedarf besteht.
