In separate talks with Mr. Michele Orzan, president of EuCham, a further development of cooperation between ICPE and EuCham was discussed. Mr. Orzan will be glad to speak at one of ICPE coming events. He presented the GreenWill initiative which provides to companies and organizations, public and private, a free green policy for environmental sustainability, guidelines for implementation and self-assessment  tools. The idea of GreenWill is to ensure the achievement of environmental, social and economic sustainability, and the reduction of the environmental impact of companies and organizations worldwide. ICPE could be on the board for this initiative in Slovenia.
Collaboration between EuCham and ICPE is developing accordingly to the Memorandum of Understanding, which was signed in February 2013 and both parties are striving for mutual benefit in the development of the CEE region as well as other initiatives that are of similar interest to both institutions.
