EXCERPT OF OUR PARTNERS

HOW DO WE MANAGE THE GREEN TRANSFORMATION?

Sustainability has an immense impact on our economy. It's a great chance for early adopters, but also a risk for those who refuse to transform. We need to collaborate, innovate and act to turn the thread into an opportunity for sustainable growth. As europe's first community-based platform, our purpose is to accelerate the green transformation by connecting the thought-leader of sustainability, especially innovators like green start-ups with corporates and investors.
UNTIL WE EXCEED OUR 1.5° CO2 BUDGET
  • collaborate.
    Interact with sustainability leaders from all areas.

  • innovate.
    Question old practices, get inspired and find new solutions.

  • act.
    Bring green ideas to life, accelerate and create impact.

CONNECTING GREEN START-UPS, TRANSFORMING CORPORATES & IMPACT INVESTORS

We derived 8 relevant fields of action from the EU Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals.

RESOURCE
EFFICIENCY

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

To save natural resources in every aspect of the value chain does not only reduces environmental impact, but also costs. This category therefore includes solutions to save energy, Co2, water or waste in all its forms.

SUSTAINABLE
FINANCE

SUSTAINABLE FINANCE

It takes USD 5-7 trillion of annual investments to achieve the SDGs by 2030. The EU taxonomy is a core element to achieve this capital shift. We will present innovative forms of financing and educate about the state of ESG investing.

FUTURE
MOBILITY

FUTURE MOBILITY

Mobility and transportation account for 14% of total greenhouse emissions. Being interconnected and intelligent, green technologies can predict demand, optimize capacity, improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact.

REGULATORY TECHNOLOGY

REGULATORY TECHNOLOGY

The European green deal and the Paris agreement will have huge legal implications for almost all companies. We will present solutions to keep up with new regulations and reporting standards in this space.

AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY

AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY

Current agricultural practices are unsustainable and ethically questionable. This Area is responsible for a large part of all co2 emissions. A drastic change is needed and we present solutions to accelerate the transition.

CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

Breakthrough CleanTech innovations are necessary not only to stop, but also to reverse climate change. Many of these technologies are currently being developed and we will present the most promising ones.

SUSTAINABLE SERVICES

SUSTAINABLE SERVICES

Managing two transformations (sustainable and digital) at a time is difficult. Specialized service providers like consultancies, law firms or coaches will offer their services to help companies to manage them effectively.

SOCIALINNOVATION

SOCIAL INNOVATION

Sustainability is more than just Co2 related. The social aspect of sustainability is even more important. We will present social entrepreneurs, possibilities for corporates, as well as best practices and tools that promote a socially responsible governance and culture.
