Join this event where dedicated profiles from the sound industry will broaden their insight in the sustainability agenda and discuss how to get started – or proceed – their important work. You will get the opportunity to spar and collaborate with others who, just like you, are responsible for sustainability initiatives in audio companies.  

Who is this event for? 

Employees or managers in audio companies responsible for translating visions of sustainability into concrete initiatives in your business. You are looking for inspiration from how others have approached the task and are willing to share your own knowledge and experiences in this area.  

Format 

The meeting will have an informal, dialogue-based format, so that everyone can share experiences, concerns, and questions, and we hopefully all will get inspiration and methods to proceed our important work in this area.

About the network group:  

The members of this new network group will help to shape and prioritize the choice of topics covered, and where the focus should be. The specific themes are agreed upon from time to time to ensure that the meetings are relevant and topical, but we expect to deal with questions like: 

  • What is sustainability and how do the UN’s Global Goals relate to sustainability?  
  • How are Danish companies obliged to work with these themes?  
  • Is there a burning platform – and what does it possibly consist of?  
  • How do you get started on working with sustainability and how do you organize it?  
  • What are the pitfalls and what challenges should you be ready to tackle?  
  • Which technical details should be taken into account? 
  • What are the types of certifications, and which one should you go for?  
  • Are there new sustainable materials out there?  
  • How to brand your efforts for sustainable change?  
  • How do you work with circular business models, and what pays off?
