    Key topics and learnings


    The Paris Agreement to combat climate change is one of the most impressive and far-reaching global deals ever done in history. Not only have 195 countries signed up to Paris, but the agreement also contains a strong call to action for corporate climate leadership. On top, in the same year 2015 the UN also adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). So, against this backdrop, what does climate leadership and sustainability stewardship really mean? How will global corporates position themselves? How can Signify, a provider of one of the keys to a low-carbon world, benefit?

     

    In this webinar, Renat Heuberger will discuss and reflect these aspects.

    Here are the learning objectives of this webinar:

    • Participants understand the concept of Carbon Neutrality - and how it fits into a Corporate Climate Leadership strategy.
    • Participants understand how efficient lighting can be a key driver of a low-carbon economy.
    • Participants understand and reflect on other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) affected by efficient lighting.
