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.
  • 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.

OUR INNOVATION AREAS

CIRCULAR
ECONOMY

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Circular Economy is an economic system that aims to eliminate waste through the continual use of resources. It is a core topic of the Green Deal agenda and brings huge opportunities for sustainable and cost-effective production.

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.

SUPPYCHAIN INNOVATION

SUPPYCHAIN INNOVATION

In our globalized world, supply chains are complex and often don’t meet SDG targets. Technology brings more transparency and efficiency in supply chains and helps companies to meet sustainability standards.

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.

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.

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.

SOCIAL
INNOVATION

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 <br /> and culture.
