Business Makes Climate Protection – Kick-off Conference for the Dialogue Forum
On 30 June 2017, the Dialogue Forum "Wirtschaft macht Klimaschutz" ("Business makes climate protection") will be held, bringing together companies from all sectors of the economy, focusing on the development of joint strategies and practical implementation measures for climate protection in companies.
After the start in early 2017, up to 180 companies will be involved in a close exchange, which is initially planned for three years. In addition, the Dialogue Forum will serve as a platform to present the climate protection management of the German economy in a bundled form. The achievements of German pioneer companies can thus become internationally visible.
The program of the event consists of two parts:
In the morning, the Dialogue Forum "Wirtschaft macht Klimaschutz" will be presented; the Federal Environment Minister will hold a greeting in a joint round with Prof. Dr. Uwe Schneidewind (President of the Wuppertal Institute) and representatives of the business community about the Climate protection measures in German companies.
In the afternoon, participants will discuss the current issues, needs and the most important approaching issues in preparation for the upcoming Dialogue Forum "Wirtschaft macht Klimaschutz".
