The climate is under threat and business has played its part in harming the environment and thereby the livelihoods of many people on our planet. But can it also bring us back on track to save the climate? What can business do, where should companies start?
“Can Business Save the Climate?” is the key question DW anchor Sarah Kelly discusses with a distinguished panel during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn:
– Her Royal Highness Princess Abzeita Djigma, Founder and CEO of AbzeSolar and Special Envoy of the President of Burkina Faso for SDG’s and Climate change.
– Prof. Dr. Christof Ehrhart, Communications and Responsibility, Deutsche Post DHL. Deutsche Post is the world’s largest logistics company and wants to have zero emissions by 2050.
– Michael Hoelter, Deutsche Asset Management. He is a fund manager for sustainable investments and executes and operates investment funds in renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change adaptation in Africa.
– Dr. Felix Matthes, Research Coordinator for Energy and Climate Policy at the Oeko Institut and a close advisor to Germany’s Federal Government on the German Energy Transition.
