Moritz Schwarz adds:
“We see limitless opportunities for impact-driven enterprises as soon as destroying the environment becomes expensive while re-generating it becomes a viable business model.
It all starts with questioning what we really need, what creates value for society and the environment and what makes economic sense.
Businesses that can answer this will become the most sustainable, resilient and thriving in the future.
We already see a start of this change where emitting Co2 becomes more expensive.
Next up is the cost of biodiversity destruction and accounting for other social, environmental factors.”
The 2021 edition of the Impact Festival will take place in Frankfurt on the 16-17 September.
The event will present exciting and innovative technologies, a colourful and international gathering of the Green Tech players from different industries, with many visionaries and motivated changemakers.
“We are focusing on bringing the right content to the right audience and promote the most impactful innovations.
We are not an event agency but a corporate investor that strives to find start-ups that help businesses with sustainable and digital transformation,” says Demuth.
The eight focus areas of the event are derived from the EU Green Deal since businesses need to watch out for the outcomes of this Europe-wide initiative and adapt their operations accordingly.
Organisers also integrated the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a more specific goal to look for the indicators where business can contribute and benefit.
