18 December, 12.00-14.00
Who is the person responsible for sustainable development in an organisation? Globally, more and more public bodies and companies from all sectors are looking for a sustainability lead, a sustainable brand experience manager, or a chief sustainability officer to supervise an entire sustainability department. Who are these people and what do they do? Why do companies that sell cars or fast food need them and how to become one?
For this public talk organized by the Living Lab in partnership with the EU Delegation to Russia we will meet those who lead the sustainability transformation of European companies such as Ikea from within and try to understand how this new norm looks like in different industries.
Amongst our guests, Ms Ana Rios Olmedo, representative of the EU Commission will talk to us about how the European Union Institutions, the same institutions that for the last years have been in the forefront of delivering a strategy towards EU emissions neutrality by 2050, are promoting a change from within and are turning greener and more sustainable.
