EGG 2020+ | Apple- und Philips-Keynote am Live-Tag

17. August 2020

Apples Nachhaltigkeitsstrategie ist vielleicht die ehrgeizigste in der IKT-Branche. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Sarah Chandler, Senior Director of Operations and Environmental Initiatives, an unserem Live-Tag dabei sein wird, um über "Apple’s roadmap to 2030: Its innovative approach to carbon neutrality and a circular supply chain" zu berichten. Im Jahr 2020 wird Philips' Fünfjahresprogramm "Healthy people, Sustainable planet" zu Ende gehen. Vor dem Start des nächsten Fünfjahresprogramms ist es an der Zeit, darauf zurückzublicken, was erreicht wurde und was aus diesen Erfolgen gelernt werden kann. Die Keynote von Eelco Smit, Senior Director Sustainability, wird sich auf die Themen Klimawandel, Ökodesign und Kreislaufwirtschaft konzentrieren, und es wird herausgearbeitet, was in den letzten fünf Jahren gut funktioniert hat und welche Fallstricke vermieden werden sollten. Verpassen Sie auf keinen Fall die beiden Keynotes am 1. September!
