About the seminar
We are delighted to be able to open the event with an introduction from Marcel Beukeboom, the Dutch Climate Envoy. The afternoon discussion will then be split into separate panels with guest speakers
In a first part of the afternoon, we will focus on the macro challenges and opportunities presented by the Energy Transition. We will hear from our speakers how the need to transition to a lower carbon, more sustainable and energy efficient environment, impacts our traditional business models, workforce and systems, but can also create positive competitive advantage.
After a short break, we will reconvene to examine how best to address what is at the core of the topic of energy transition - a fundamental change management process. We will explore what this entails in reality, with regard to governance, engagement with stakeholders, communication and inclusion, in order to realise sustainable, resilient future. A future where the social, environmental, behavioral impact is indeed liveable and sustainable.
There will be time to listen, time to reflect, time to question and time to exchange ideas & visions. We hope to have the honor and pleasure of your participation and contribution to this event.
