GTF Conference Opening Ceremony

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

10:00-10:30

In the grand opening ceremony of the Greentech Festival 2022, 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 do 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.

Are we really ready for a zero-carbon economy?

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

10:30-11:00

Business, politics and our global community are going to need to reinvent themselves if we want to meet our climate goals. The march to net-zero will inevitably produce winners and losers, but planning must take place at all levels so that new value is created and nobody is left behind. As the global south industrialises, we simply can’t afford to have them make the same mistakes we’ve made in the past. So let’s explore ways of creating tech, knowledge and value transfer that sees benefits flowing North, South, East and West. Come and understand where society, industry and our global community are heading in the new economy.

Story 1 – Food, lifestyle and Living

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

11:00-11:45

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 and visions, and how are technology and innovation driving change?

Story 2 – Moving the right way

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

11:45-12:30

Decarbonising movement over land, air and sea is a mammoth task, but the once slow-paced transport market is now under rapid distruption. Corona and conflict have changed behaviours but also caused consumers to reconfigure their values. Sustainability has emerged as a key driver, and those who walk the talk are being rewarded. Whether you’re moved by future technologies, fast cars or sustainable flight, “Moving the right way” will show you where we‘re heading.

Crisis Talks: What’s the right path to net-zero energy

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

12:30-13:00

The growing climate catastrophe shows that we we stand at 1 minute to midnight and with the crisis in Ukraine, the calls for a divestment from oil and gas grow stronger. Therefore the proposal by the European Commission to class gas and nuclear power as sustainable was seen by some as a great betrayal. However, turn off gas and fossil fuels tomorrow and 100 Millions of Europeans would die within weeks. So, what is the right path to energy independence? Expect hard facts, truth telling and a no-holds-barred exchange as Greenpeace and Focus Energy unpack our energy futures.

Story 3: Financing the Future

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

13:30-14:00

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?

Panel: Hydrogen and replacement fuels: roadblocks, business cases and breakthroughs

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

14:00-14:30

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 energy sources that are local, sustainable and clean. Hydrogen and replacement fuels hold great promise, however, what’s going to be needed to drive the energy transition and meet our climate goals? Find out what businesses are leading the race, how consumers can get involved, and which companies are pushing the boundaries in adopting hydrogen in their daily operations?

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

14:30-15:15

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?

Story 5: Circularity!

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

15:45-16:30

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.

Bursting the ‘Green Bubble’ with better communication

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

16:30-17:00

Whether dark art or beautiful science, good communication is the key to creating the unity required to fight climate change. Yet in this task of finding a common language, we currently fail with stark divisions between those who live change and those who don’t. So how do we stop preaching to ourselves and escape the Green Bubble? What role should technology providers play in creating platforms and algorithms that diversify opinion and encourage unity rather than division? What can we learn from the latest research in communication science and how can this help us reach a wider audience? And when things go wrong, how can crises and conflicts in communication help us to redefine our audience, values and goals?

GREEN CEO PLEDGES and ‘lean in’ panel discussion

Thursday 23.06

Main Stage

17:00-17:20

4-5 CEOs from household name companies will take to the stage to give a binding pledge regarding the companies’ sustainability commitments. They are allowed a signle sentence with no explaination or PR/Greenwash pitch (ideally all physically present). Afterwards they will join a panel discussion discussing the need to ‘lean in’, take risks and be change leaders rather than followers in setting benchmarks for sustainable business practices.

Deepdive

11:00-11:45

Last year, internet infrastructure emitted more CO2 than the airline industry and Bitcoin alone has a larger C02 footprint than New Zealand. While many IT and Communications providers are doing their part to become more sustainable, in many cases a rethink is needed regarding how we engage and consume digital technology. From environmentally-friendly Blockchain, and 5G efficiency to carbon neutral data centres, this Deepdive is your go-to place for understanding IT sustainability.

Supply-chain, circularity, and net-zero industries

Thursday 23.06

Deepdive

11:45-12:30

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.

Going the extra mile: with sustainable mobility

Thursday 23.06

Deepdive

12:30-13:15

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 electromobility seem to hold the answer to many of the challenges of modern congested living. However, as we move towards new modes of sustainable transport, how can we be sure that we’re rolling out infrastructure that makes living more comfortable, equitable and accessible for all?

Urban sustainability: Green design, planning and infrastructure

Thursday 23.06

Deepdive

13:30-14:15

Our built world and the structures and designs we interact with every day hold the potential to be some of sustainability’s most universal, yet deeply personal touchpoints. What considerations need to be made when we design, architect and engineer these spaces? How should we be developing transport and mobility networks so that they democratic and accessible to all? Discover a new perspective on our urban world and see how sustainable principles and technology can drive creativity, easy connection, health and prosperity.

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

Thursday 23.06

Deepdive

14:15-15:00

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

Get involved, get informed and see the change that is gripping the food-industry.

Decarbonising transport and logistics

Thursday 23.06

Deepdive

15:45-16:30

The long-distance trasport of people and goods accounts for a large proportion of our global C02 footprint. Efforts to decarbonise have shown limited success due to the high energy loads of these industries. Can hydrogen and e-fuels meet their promise as high-yield, energy-dense replacements? How far off is mainstream carbon neutral flight and what can be done by consumers and businesses to speed up the process of transformation?

To bring ourselves back from the brink of catastrophe, we are going to need to repair much of the damage that has already been done to earth’s systems. Specifically, we need to create sustainable business models that rapidly draw down carbon from the atmosphere, we need to protect the natural resources and capital that sustain life and we need to build restorative agriculture to allow generations to thrive. Join experts from diverse fields as we explore net-positive business models.
