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. Presentation and discussion in English.
