True sustainability: the future red line strategy for the European Solar Shading industry

Sustainability is growing from a buzz-word to a necessity. The changing world demands new images of the future where the solar shading world would fit in very well. But the sector must also embrace new ways of thinking and acting. How do we respond as industry? What is our role in society and to our consumers? How can we contribute to a better future for all? During the 2nd CEO Business Summit, ES-SO presents two keynote speakers who will explain their view on true sustainability and give advice on how our industry should adapt its solutions and way of doing business to meet the needs of consumers in a rapidly changing world.
