Industry Roundtables 2018-2019

Industry Roundtable: What does sustainability concretely mean in the daily work of architects and engineers?
9 October 2018, 17:30 to 19:15, at the Swisstech Convention Center, room 4C.

Increased focus on sustainable development by the society at large has imposed a number of constraints on business, in terms of environmental, social and economic impacts. These constraints may represent new opportunities for innovative enterprises. How do engineers and architects contribute to the creation of new products and services which are more environmentally-friendly and based on fair trade principles while still remaining economically viable? By sharing both their achievements and their frustrations, Alumni working in a wide range of sectors will divulge how they integrate these concerns on a day-to-day basis.  Presentations and panel discussion in English.

Speakers:
– Mrs Olivia Grebler, Sustainable Restaurant Certification Programs Expert at Ecocook®
– Mrs Amélie Orthlieb, Environmental Sustainability Specialist, at Nespresso
– Mrs Julia Beyer, Co-founder & President at thefairtraveller
– Mr. Xun Liao, Sustainability Consultant, at Quantis
