CONFERENCE PROGRAM

BUSINESS AS USUAL IS DEAD

We have reached a critical mass. The stage has been set, and opportunities for green business are expanding by the day. The old world of profit at any cost is dead, killed by a NEW MARKET where customers, investors, regulators and the future workforce reward those who show true GREEN LEADERSHIP. Sustainability has become BIG business and it makes GOOD business sense. Still unsure? Come and see for yourself. At the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, we bring together best-in-class examples of GREEN BUSINESS INNOVATION, technology and leadership so you can stay at the frontier of this incredible new movement. Join our community and let’s show the world that sustainability means business!

In the opening ceremony of the Greentech Festival 2024, we will launch discussions off with deep insights into the future of sustainable business and global policy. To build a better world we need brave voices calling for change and leaders willing to take risks in order to correct the collision course we are heading on. ‘Business as usual’ is dead and in our brave new world, sustainability must become synonymous with good business. The market, customers and investors have clearly show that they will reward those who stand behind inclusive, sustainable and ethical values so let’s start the conversation, unafraid to take on the challenges before us.

Opening Panel: Leveraging Collaboration for Sustainable Success

Friday 15.11

Main Stage

09:45-10:15

From the deeply personal aspects of how we live our lives, through to our global supply chains, sustainability touches all aspects of our lives. Addressing it will require us to transform everything from the micro to the macro and can only be successful if we work together. Yet partnerships have to be chosen carefully and collaboration don’t run themselves. How do we get started in creating a transformation ecosystem that will deliver for business and the planet?

Move and Energize

Friday 15.11

Main Stage

10:30-11:00

We are in the midst of a severe energy crisis with flow-on effects that touch all aspects of business and life. With the war dragging on and the current volatility tipped to increase into the winter, it’s time we face a new and uncertain energy future. Within the current climate, what things can we do to ease pressure on the market; how quickly can the growing trend of renewables and electromobility influence demand; and is the current crisis going to speed up or slow down decarbonisation? Hear from leaders in Energy, Mobility and Transport as we map out a path for sustainable energy futures.

Panel: Thriving in a sustainability revolution: Why tech and trust should dance together

Friday 15.11

Main Stage

11:00-11:30

We are in the middle of a sustainability revolution, and everybody from hi-tech to car tyre companies are scrambling to realign product, brand and employee image around sustainable principals. Technology, sensor systems and IoT have incredible roles to play in creating the kinds of transparency and immediate feedback that will attract customers, investors and the best employees. But technology alone is never enough, and for lasting change we need to talk about trust and culture. Where do we start, how do we measure progress and what does success feel like in a technology-driven sustainability revolution?

Sustainable Lifestyles: Decarbonizing Arts and Sports

Friday 15.11

Main Stage

12:20-12:50

“If you can dream it, you can do it” were the inspiring words attributed of Walt Disney. Yet if we don’t want sustainability in arts and sport to remain in the realms of Fantasia then we’re going to have to dream big and act even bigger! There are signs for positivity with the film and creators sector addresing many underlying issues and the fast-approaching LA Olymipcs aiming to embed sustainable principles into their planning and make sure ‘no community is left behind’. Yet much more needs to be done, and many of the problems exist simply as a result of the culture of mass consumption surrounding media and sport. How should we approach sustainability in entertainment so that dreams of equitable and sustainable futures can become real for all?
