Programme Highlights

Exploring the fine line between greenwashing and a proactive sustainability strategy,
Wednesday April 19, 16.00-17.00 at Deloitte Auditorium

Registration is required
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? And how do you secure realism in setting and reporting sustainability targets? Based on Danske Banks recent experience with launching their ambitious climate plan, the panel will 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.

Organizing for Transformative Innovation,
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. This event takes the form of a real-time research interview, where researchers deep dive into the organizational challenges and learnings of a case company. Sit in and experience both research and practice and get inspiration from the reflections.
