Exploring the fine line between greenwashing and a proactive sustainability strategy,
Wednesday April 19, 16.00-17.00 at Deloitte Auditorium
Registration is required
Meet 3 of the most distinguished sustainability pioneers in Denmark and hear them share perspectives on the role, challenges and future potentials. How do you act proactively in the green transition without being accused for green-washing? Is the media even interested in communicating these complex issues? How do you secure realism in setting and reporting sustainability targets? And what is it like to have this role? With point of departure in Danske Banks recent experience with launching their ambitious climate plan, the panelists will share personal perspectives and debate these difficult dilemmas, that most companies currently have to deal with.

Forget the start-up wisdom from Silicon Valley if we want to scale green tech companies,
Tuesday April 18, 13.30-14.30 at Kilen S.54
Cornel and Laurits are both full of knowledge, ideas and inspiration on green transition governance. They will share insights on how to overcome valley-of-death financing issues for green hard-tech companies and suggest the need for new approaches to scaling this type of companies if we really want to accelerate green transition. This debate between practice and theory will probably also touch upon the role of regulation versus market. Here, they probably will not agree, but they will give input for personal reflection. Malte, the CBS student who brought the two together, will bridge, structure and highlight key take-aways.

Tuesday April 18, 11.30-12.30, at Kilen S.54
To pursue green transition companies have to transform their organizations and how they innovate.
