∙ How can utilities shape the future development of smart cities – smart infrastructure – smart buildings?
∙ Future cities will be shaped by technology and will also create challenges for both authorities and companies. Are we ready for the coming challenges?
∙ Smart & sustainable buildings: real estate developers are innovation drivers for urban growth, improving the lives of citizens and employees, wellbeing and safety;
∙ Sustainable infrastructure needs smart buildings: smart parking space for individual vehicles, smart public transportation to have stations close to office buildings that hosts many employees.

ABOUT

It is said that challenging times create strong leaders. We are surely experiencing those times, and now, more than ever, we need those strong leaders to step up and take charge to face the challenges of the current crisis.

While true leadership is indeed a rare commodity, the Romanian business community is fortunate enough to have among its members, inspiring men and women, top professionals in their fields, who have already answered the call to action and have brought their positive, insightful, or otherwise constructive contributions in a time we needed them the most.

That’s why Business Review launched the Call for Leaders series of interviews, where many C-level professionals have answered our featured 3Q. Now, we are taking this campaign to the next level, bringing you the Call4Leaders – Video Talks, a series of live conferences featuring some of the most inspiring people to have enlisted in this effort.

You can sign on as well and join us online to find out, directly from the leaders of the Romanian business community, how keeping a positive frame of mind, being resilient, stepping up for those who depend on you, adapting to completely new environments, and showing solidarity with others, will help us rebuild, even from the ground up if need be.

Environmental & Sustainability Summit 2020

Environmental & Sustainability Summit 2020

ABOUT

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought, very suddenly, a global contraction of human activities. The industrial sector, air traffic and tourism, were some of the most affected businesses, but is there a silver lining?

Forced by the current crisis, we have initiated one of the biggest environmental experiments in history: the pandemic showed us that we can have a green future. But, as things will eventually settle down and the crisis will pass, from an environmental perspective returning to our old ways when the pandemic will be over is not the most desirable outcome. The new normality must be a sustainable one. What can WE do to keep this trend?

WE CAN. WE DO.

WHY ATTEND
EXCLUSIVELY CURATED CONTENT
We carefully select international and local speakers so they provide actionable learning, inspiration and motivation. Our speakers will not talk in front of a camera, they will engage the audience, answer your questions and make your day worth it.
COMMUNITY BUILDERS
Interact with a powerful community of decision-makers, thought leaders, opinion formers, government officials, strategy experts, leading executives of multinational companies, avantgarde thinkers & doers relevant actors in the field of waste management.
SOLUTIONS. ANSWERS. MOTIVATION.
Discover and share ideas while seamlessly connecting with other audience members at an online event with a solution-oriented approach, featuring concrete examples with star players who are truly dedicated to protecting the environment.
AGENDA
June 5
Opening Keynote Speech
10:00
Marius Vaščega
European Commission Head of Cabinet Environment, Oceans and Fisheries
PANEL 1 | Restart Green Romania

The current context may repeat itself in a not so distant future. Studies show that virus transmissions from animals to humans and the impact they have on the human body is directly linked to deforestations and air, water and soil pollution.
We have the opportunity, but also the duty, to restart our activities in the post-pandemic world without our previous negative impact on the environment. Clearer and more effective measures must be implemented in areas such as water and forest protection, energetic efficiency, green transportation, and waste management.

10:15

Topics:
· Restarting at different levels (Romania, the EU, the UN);
· European legislation, before and after Covid-19;
· European, national, and local projects;
· Involving all the players in implementing sustainable projects (The UN, the EU, governments, companies, NGOs, citizens);

Even if sustainability and circular economy are very often talked about, the reality is far from the potential. Even in developed countries, objectives are met only after sustained efforts. Can Romania, like other emerging countries, afford these efforts?

11:15

Topics:
· Sustainability at country level: digitalization, green energy, transportation, ecological agriculture, waste management;
· Circular Economy in Romania & SEE. A model based on development, culture & education levels;
· Sustainable packaging. Selective waste collection vs. sorting. Recycling;
· Involving stakeholders – authorities – companies – population – Launching the Movement for Recycling.

Foreign Investors Summit – 7th edition

DAY 2 LIVE VIDEO

October 22, 2020, starting at 11:00 AM

DAY 1 RECORDING

Recorded live on October 21, 2020

ABOUT

In light of recent developments involving the public health crisis, the 7th edition of the Foreign Investors Summit GOES FULL ONLINE.

All around the globe the pandemic has taken its toll on broader economies. According to various studies, the total volume of Foreign Direct Investments is going to downsize 30 to 40 percent in 2020. Different regions and countries FDIs are impacted differently depending mostly on the measures packages implemented by the authorities to help economy and companies to cope with the pandemic effects.

At the 7th edition of the Foreign Investors Summit, a well known two-day event, we will focus on Romania’s showcase as a potential investment destination even in these hard times for investors. High representatives of the Romanian Government, leading experts in economy and geo-politics, business leaders and entrepreneurs, diplomats, chambers of commerce and business associations will analyze and debate our country competitiveness in the turmoil caused by the pandemic. Among the key questions for our speakers and panelists are some of the following:

  • Are the measures implemented or announced by the Romanian Government really working in helping maintaining competitiveness of local economy and what more can be done?
  • What are the main domains and markets that are still attractive for foreign investors?
  • Are there any changes in the traditional appeal of foreign investors who focused in the past couple of years in real-estate, IT, energy, agriculture, banking or services?
  • After two years of stagnation in FDIs and the downsizing in 2020 what can be expected in 2021?

Join us at Business Review's main event of the year and take a glance at what our guests thoughts of the future of FDIs in Romania are. Together we can keep our economy safe!
