Amsterdam #2 - Climate Cocktail Club
Time & Location
About the event
Take two for the Climate Cocktail Club Amsterdam! Say Hallo to the late Spring sunshine with a cocktail (or beer, wine, mixer, juice, water...) in hand!
The theme is "Dutch innovation driving global change" and we have two modern day examples of Dutch champions driving global change on the climate front as guest speakers. They’re guaranteed to inspire the conversations that CCC is all about…
First up, we’ll hear from Robert Metzke, Head of Innovation and Sustainability at Royal Philips, talk about how the Paris Climate Accord was actually the most important health policy of the 21st Century and how that thinking has driven Philips from recycling their coffee cups to RE100 and SBT ambition changing the landscape of Sustainability globally.
Then we’ll have the pleasure of being challenged by Barbara Huneman, Commercial & External Affairs Manager Energy at Nouryon, on her vision of The future Netherlands that stops scratching at the edges of the climate economics and invests in ground breaking visions like the Groningen Hydrogen Deltaplan and 100 MW+ electrolysers fed by green energy.
We are looking for event partners to help fund the costs of hosting the event - if your business is interested in supporting and partnering with us and Schneider Electric, please reach out!! CCC cannot happen without the financial support of partners! email@example.com.
