TOP-CLASS CLIMATE EXPERT AT THE EXECUTIVE NIGHT OF THE
PREMIUM LEADERS CLUB
Climate protection and profitability are not mutually exclusive, and companies can improve their energy efficiency – this was impressively demonstrated at the PLC’s Executive Night at the Parkhotel Hyatt Vienna.
Rising energy prices, ever-increasing CO2 taxes and stricter regulations regarding environmental protection are increasingly becoming a challenge for companies. Profitability and climate protection often seem to be mutually exclusive. One of the leading experts on sustainable management has proven in his presentation at the Executive Night of the Premium Leaders Club that this is not the case: Prof. Dr. Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker. Only recently, his new book on this topic, “That’s not enough – foreign policy, new economics, new enlightenment – What we need now in the climate crisis.” was published with content that is also meeting with great approval in the business world. “The climate discussion has been going on for three decades. Politicians and companies are called upon to cooperate. New business models and a lot of innovation are necessary to drive the climate turnaround,” said the honorary president of the Club of Rome.
Saving electricity – easing the burden on power grids
“Austria’s municipalities are currently taking many initiatives to prevent a blackout. These include, for example, the establishment of energy communities. In this way, one decentralizes power supply and relieves electricity grids,” said Dr. Herbert Greisberger, Managing Director of the Energy and Environment Agency of the Province of Lower Austria and board member of the Austrian energy communities.
