Startup-Talks: Green tech - innovations in our sector for sustainable development
In Start-up Talks: Green Tech, a founder, an expert and a representative of the Association of German Start-ups will discuss the role played by green-tech start-ups and how they can work together successfully with companies to counteract climate change and reach climate targets.
Green Tech has gone from being a niche subject to a major technology trend in just a short space of time. The significance of entrepreneurial approaches for achieving our objectives in terms of sustainable development has been recognised both nationally and internationally – from the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Green Deal to the climate package of the German government.
At the same time, consumer awareness of the need for sustainability increased greatly and the market for sustainable bonds grew rapidly. Innovations from the green-tech segment offer solutions for environmental and climate protection whereby renewable energy and energy efficiency play a leading role.
In the future, products and services will not only be measured on the energy balance over their entire life cycle but they will also have to make a decisive contribution to achieving EU climate targets.
Although many innovative products and services come from start-ups, many of the sector’s well-established companies are also banking on sustainability.
In Start-up Talks: Green Tech Anna Alex, Co-Founder & COO Planetly / Christoph Berger, Founder & CEO vilisto / Dr. Jörg Praczyk, Leader Research & Development WILO / Franziska Teubert, Managing Director German Association of Startups e.V., Publisher of Green Startup Monitor, will discuss the role played by green-tech start-ups and how they can work together successfully with companies to counteract climate change and reach climate targets. What role does building-services technology play in this connection? How is the growing significance of sustainability changing the strategy of established companies in the sector? Which changes and innovations are to be expected in our sector?
