The two-day Environmental & Sustainability Summit, organized by Business Review Magazine, will host a paramount platform for discussions and debate around the most pressing issues facing the world of today and tomorrow. Environmentalism and sustainability are at the forefront of all economic recovery plans, as key organizations such as the EU or the UN are setting ambitious goals which private enterprises around the world are picking up, accelerating the change.
Together with Romania’s most important changemakers, the very people which are leading the sustainable change, we will explore key aspects of the much needed #GreenRestart we are striving for: from sustainable food and water consumption, and eco-communities, to renewable energy sources and circular economy, each with its very own panel.
Join us on September 28-29 at Business Review's main sustainability event of the year, the only two-day summit of its kind in Romania, and take an inside look at what the top speaking guests have to say about creating a new normality through sustainable means. Only together we can keep our future safe!
WE CAN. WE DO.
Water, sustainable agriculture, eco food, nature-based solution, circular bioeconomy.
∙Turning to nature, preserving natural resources and the preparing the foundation for a bioeconomy is a big opportunity for Romanian economy at large and specially for the local agriculture sector.
∙Is the wastewater management still a problem in Romania?
∙ Are the local agribusinesses prepared to embrace sustainable business practices?
∙Do we need a new refreshed environment legislation in order to achieve a better level of sustainability in the Romanian agriculture? What are the key projects and solutions do to that?
Smart cities, transportation, automotive, urban water pollution, eco-friendly urban life, waste management
∙ It all starts and ends with our communities. The way we build, the way we travel, the way we consume and manage waste are all connected and they all mean to live sustainable. It might not be that easy when we talk about our big urban communities.
∙ Local developers already met the highest standards in sustainable buildings on punctual projects. But how to make the whole community sustainable?
∙ Is it possible to build a modern, sustainable community and live and eco-friendly urban life on an old, inefficient infrastructure?
∙ Is it about public transportation? About waste management? About pollution and traffic? About smart public applications? This is the right time to put everything on the table and prepare a masterplan.
Renewable energy sources. The future grid. Digital transformation. CO2 emission targets. Consumers & Prosumers
∙A new wave of investments in green energy projects (wind and solar) is expected next year after a long time of “drought”. Also, the big old energy companies are looking into developing new energy capacities, both classic and new ones. What is to come?
∙After a surge in electric cars sales over the last couple of years we have to look at charging infrastructure.
∙ How long is the “future” of future grid?
∙ Are the prosumer a real trend? How do get traditional energy companies into the prosumer market? ∙ ∙ ∙ How does the “Fit for 55” European project will affect local energy market?
Investments, circular business models, corporate activism, nature-based solutions, inclusion
∙ Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources. Sustainability is not just environmentalism. Embedded in most definitions of sustainability we also find concerns for social equity and economic development.
∙ Adopting sustainable practices, whether large or small, can have significant impacts in the long run. ∙ Does Romanian Economy already started to move from a linear pattern to a circular economy?
∙ What are the projects and business who are on the way to become fully sustainable?
∙ Where do we start the process and what can be done to speed up the change?
