Build Back Greener: Principles for Kickstarting the Sustainable Transition through Partnership

Build Back Greener – Principles for Kickstarting the Sustainable Transition through Partnerships, is a unique transatlantic event, which aims to create a platform for the discussions around a green economic recovery and the impact and nature of the private and public sectors’ commitments to the sustainable transition in the shadow of Covid-19. Instead of simply reinventing an outdated economic model, countries, cities, and companies must look towards green recovery strategies to create sustainable growth that is beneficial for the climate, the economy, and our health.

This year, NYSERDA, Danish Cleantech Hub, State of Green, the Confederation of Danish Industry and NYC Climate Week invite participants to rethink partnerships as a platform to learn and share insight with the purpose of accelerating the green growth and transition.
