Webinar: The Urban Opportunity - City/Business Collaboration for Sustainable Solutions


Mayors of the world's biggest, most influential cities are setting ambitious targets to mitigate emissions. However, countries and cities cannot act alone and will require considerable support from the private sector to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and SDG 11. At the same time, businesses recognize the risks that climate change poses. How can city mayors and businesses translate their global climate commitments into practical actions that limit global temperature rise to 1.5’C?

Join Danfoss, the City of Copenhagen and MIT Sustainable Design Lab for a look at the example of EnergyLab Nordhavn and discussion of how Denmark’s organizations are coming together to meet sustainability goals and combat climate change.

Panelists: Jonas Loholm Hamann, Communication & Public Affairs Advisor, Danfoss Cooling & Jørgen Abildgaard, Project Director for the 2025 Carbon Neutral strategy and plan for the City of Copenhagen
