Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

10:00-10:45

In the grand opening ceremony of the Greentech Festival 2021, we will launch discussions off with positivity, a few celebrity surprises and deep insights into the future of sustainable business. To build a better world we need brave voices calling for change and leaders willing to take risks in order to build incredible visions. ‘Business as usual’ is dead and in our new world, sustainability has become synonymous with success and the market, customers and investors will reward those who stand behind inclusive, sustainable and ethical values. How do we start this journey today, how to we measure success and how do we communicate the small and big wins along the way. Let’s start the conversation, unafraid and open to great possibilities.

Story 1 – Food, lifestyle and living

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

10:45-12:00

How we live is personal. It’s what we eat, the clothes we wear, and the products we buy. Increasingly, sustainability is becoming everyone’s business and personal choices are reshaping entire markets. With the way we eat, live and play changing so fundamentally, what should brands be doing to orient themselves, what role can communication play in reshaping behaviors, attitudes, visions and how are technology and innovation driving change?

Story 2 – Energy for good

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

12:00-13:00

The energy market has tipped and is rewarding those who pivoted early to efficient use and renewable sources. Many see the current transition as just the beginning with the steady march of energy storage and the fast approach of H2 set to disrupt the industry further. Where will the energy market be in the next 5 to 10 years and where should we be investing thought, effort and capital?

13:00-13:45

We are sitting on the cusp of a revolution. The technology is ready, policies are falling into place and industry is hungry to move to power generation that is local, sustainable and clean. Hydrogen and synthetic fuels hold great promise and coupled with sustainable electricity generation, show incredible commercial potential. What businesses are leading the race in adopting these new technologies, how can consumers support this transition and which technologies are pushing the boundaries in this exciting new field?

As part of this year’s two-way hybrid concept, World Economic Forum ‘Young Change-maker’ Melati Wijsen will deliver a flash-keynote from the shores of her beautiful but threatened island home of Bali in Indonesia.

Story 3 – Financing the future

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

14:00-15:00

It’s said that “money makes the world go around”, and certainly the shape of future finance policies will define the success or failure of sustainability programs for generations to come. With so much at stake, a delicate balance must be reached between progressive policies that stimulate rapid divestment and regulatory stability supporting long-term business planning. What is the current state of play in finance markets, what certainties can business bet on and what’s the role of green bonds and other incentives in shaping better practice?

Story 4 – Moving the right way

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

15:00-16:00

For people and goods, mobility has transformed the once slow transport market into a fast-paced wild west, where those who merge things and data into great services win. However, not all technologies were born equal and the logic that competition leads to efficient sustainability does not always hold true. Whether you’re moved by future technologies, fast cars or sleek algorithms, “Moving the right way” will show you how to link great services to sustainable success.

Holistically green: talking and walking green in life as in business

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

16:00-16:30

It’s time we talk about what it means to be green. It’s a delicate subject and one where it’s easy to get lost in definitions, when what should be focused on is delivering lasting outcomes. At its core, being authentically green is about putting actions before words and letting your values drive your message. Hear from leaders in business, arctic adventurers, and fashion designers as they explore what it means to talk and walk green in their lives as in business.

Story 5 – Rethinking products, production and (re)use

Thursday 17.06

Main Stage

16:30-17:15

With finite resources and increasing competition, reliance on one-way supply chains that often begin with exploitation and end at the dump is finally coming to an end. Smart products and IoT enable transparency, informed consumers reward sustainable leadership and companies that take on circularity and cradle-to-cradle open themselves up to a new paradigm of efficiency and market leadership. Go circular, evolve your supply chains and let’s open a new paradigm in sustainable products, production and (re)use.

Going the extra Mile with sustainable urban mobility

Thursday 17.06

Innovate Deepdive

12:00-13:00

While in modern cities, elevators whisk you down at 10 levels per second, the solid lines of cars at the exit pass you by at a crawl. Collaborative sharing networks, crowd-sourced planning, and E-mobility platforms seem to hold the answer to many of the challenges of modern congested living. However, how much of this is a new wave of hype, and are we investing time and efforts where it will deliver the greatest returns?

Building your big green dreams: let’s talk about brand, HR and company culture

Thursday 17.06

Innovate Deepdive

14:00-15:00

Intention drives result. Nowhere is that more obvious than in efforts to build a brand, employee image and company culture around sustainable business. Done well and the market, customers and the best impact-driven employees will open up to you. But culture change can be painful, requires careful management and alignment, and it has its risks. Where do we start, how do we measure progress and what does success feel and look like?

The emperor’s new clothes: sustainable, reused and biosynthetic

Thursday 17.06

15:00-16:00

Once a niche market and side-lined as “alternative”, demand for ethically produced and sustainable materials now far outpaces supply networks’ ability to adapt. Disruption is rife and from high-end cars, fashion and furniture through to your everyday shirt; the talk of the town is changing and local, ethical, and biosynthetic have become the new black.

Trust in global sustainability project is the fundamental basis for success and progress. Transparency and accountability effects all levels of the value-chain and require good measurement and transparent reporting.

Systems and cycles in nature offer a perfect example for better practices and processes for humans: Natural balance of the intake and outtake of energy in a system, the replacement or regeneration of resources, positive feedback loops that support integrity and stability. How can we produce such systems in our transport, freight and production networks? What benefits come from responsible and regenerative sourcing? And how can we re-engineer our and earth’s systems to repair the damage we’ve done.

To bring ourselves back from the brink of catastrophe, innovation and technology are going to be central to our success.

Thursday 17.06

16:00-16:30

Standing on the climate precipice, failure and inaction are not options. However, a well-defined path forward also doesn’t exist. Is the system so broken, that a complete rebuild is required with new technologies, approaches and business models? Should we stop investing so much money in non-proven tech and focus on the role out of simple approaches that can give paybacks for global communities today, or are bold new inventions our only hope for radical change? Help us find a way forward in navigating this difficult landscape in times of uncertainty.

Man Rolling Class 2: MAN’s 360° Solution consulting approach to e-Mobility

Friday 18.06

MAN Rolling Class

11:00-12:05

There are many reservations regarding electromobility; however, where do we really stand as an industry, and as a market? It’s time we have a myth/fact check about electromobility. The MAN concept is a 360-degree solution in which we not only offer the customer the right vehicle with the right battery system, but also comprehensive advice on optimal vehicle use and fleet integration. We also make sure that fleet planning is as efficient as possible and that maximum transport volume is achieved with as few vehicles as possible which is drives down user costs and makes our solutions more environmentally friendly.

We will discuss innovative solutions that are catered to new mobility locally in Berlin-Brandenburg and globally.
