In the wake of climate change, sustainability has risen to popularity. It is noted that nowadays company descriptions and marketing focus on the topic, offices apply for certificates and cities engage in sustainable values.
How does this affect the reality of working life? Is sustainability visible in the day-to-day of employees in different fields? How is sustainability defined? Do we need sustainability managers in the workplace?
Our panelists are representatives of the public, private and third sector. Our discussion focus is sustainability in workplaces, which are not in the fields of “cleantech” or environmental protection.
