Global Markets between Climate Policy and Innovation

Global Markets between Climate Policy and Innovation


Climate Protection reappeared on the political agenda through the publication of the Stern Report. What challenges does the UNEP see, how can global institutions react? How will the Federal Government of Germany push the issue of climate protection during the German EU Presidency in 2007? And: What does these two question mean to multi-national corporations?

Sustainability Lounge is an independent forum in the field of economics – policy – sustainability. In this forum, innovative concepts within the field of sustainability are discussed and incentives for responsible actions given.

Participants of the Sustainability Lounge are decision makers from the fields of politics, businesses, trade associations, NGOs and labour unions, as well as representatives from the media and science.

The series of events is carried out through an unusual partnership, which stands as much for relevance and establishment of the topic as for its proximity to corporate practices. Organisers of the Sustainability Lounge are the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW), Ecologic - Institute for International and European Environmental Policy and Vodafone D2.

The moderator of the Sustainibility Lounge is Petra Pinzler, a European correspondent for the newspaper “Die Zeit” based in Brussels.
