To mark the release of DKUK and Planet One Point Five’s sustainability report ‘Green Horizon’, we are bringing the contributing companies together for a panel discussion to explore the report findings further. 

We have surpassed the days where the main question about corporate sustainability was “why”. Now, the question is rather “how”. In this panel discussion we are highlighting some inspiring examples of sustainability strategies that are effective in delivering progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 

Join us at Ørsted’s office in central London for this lively panel discussion exploring best sustainability practices. With the aim to inspire the direction of your next steps in your sustainability journey.

This event is about connecting with others over the topic of sustainability and hopefully will leave you feeling inspired.
