Webinar: The Urban Opportunity - City/Business Collaboration for Sustainable Solutions

Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at 11:30am to 12:30pm

Virtual Event

New date!

Mayors of the world's biggest, most influential cities are setting ambitious targets to mitigate emissions. However, governments cannot act alone and will require considerable support from the private sector to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and SDG 11. At the same time, businesses recognize the risks that climate change poses. How can cities and businesses translate their global climate commitments into practical actions that limit global temperature rise to 1.5’C?

Join Danfoss, the City of Copenhagen and MIT Sustainable Design Lab for a look at the example of EnergyLab Nordhavn and discussion of how Denmark’s organizations are coming together to meet sustainability goals and combat climate change.

Registration Required: RSVP HERE

Panelists: Susanne Tull, Senior Manager Public Affairs, Danfoss A/S, Heating Segment & Jørgen Abildgaard, Project Director for the 2025 Carbon Neutral strategy and plan for the City of Copenhagen

Moderator: Alpha Yacob Arsano, Research Assistant at the MIT Sustainable Design Lab and PhD Candidate in Building Technology

We hope for this session to be as interactive as possible, so please come with your thoughts for a Q&A, or feel free to send us a question in advance via the RSVP form.

This discussion is part of the MIT-Denmark “Tomorrow’s Cities” Webinar Series on adapting to the needs of future societies, using Denmark as a case study.
