HOW CAN WE CREATE A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE?

Invitation | Tuesday 23 October 2018

 
 
 

Dear Mrs. Bakker,

 
 
 

‘Our lifestyle is not sustainable’. This strong statement comes from Barney Swan - the first person to ski to the South Pole powered by renewable energy.

We are convinced that sustainability both inside and outside our companies is no longer an option but a real necessity. That is why BNP Paribas’ top environmental priority is to fight against climate change.

To inspire you, we ask you to join us in the conviction that our future can be sustainable.
Together with Barney Swan, Sybille van den Hove, BNP Paribas Securities Services and Women on Board, we are pleased to invite you to our event on ‘How can we create a sustainable future’ on Tuesday 23 October 2018.

BRIEF PRESENTATION OF OUR SPEAKERS

Barney Swan has an acute understanding of how energy works, stemming from being raised in "off-the-grid" Australia where conveniences were often not an option.
Following his father, Robert Swan, Barney has undertaken a colossal challenge: to clean up 326 million tons of CO2 in just seven years, a number which represents the current population of the United States.

Dr. Sybille van den Hove, Executive Director of Bridging for Sustainability - a research and consulting company in Belgium - is an expert in sustainability governance, science-policy interfaces and corporate environmental responsibility and strives to contribute to a societal transformation towards sustainability. Sybille is a board member of Women on Board and IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.).
