About the Event:
World Efficiency Solutions (WE), is the premier global market place for public and private stakeholders committed to accelerating low-carbon and resource-efficient solutions.
WE fosters new interactions between businesses, cities, governments and financiers by delivering fruitful contacts, demos, inspiration, expertise and previews through a dedicated platform and event. WE provides participants with a global place to meet, to communicate needs, share experiences, convince investors, partners and customers, and provide or acquire the solutions needed for a resource efficient future.
The estimated market opportunities from the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are larger than USD 12 trillion (www.businesscommission.org). In Europe alone, adopting circular-economy principles could generate a net economic benefit of €1.8 trillion by 2030 (McKinsey, September 2015, Circular Economy for a Competitive Europe).
World Efficiency Solutions is a vibrant new business platform that leads the way to make this happen in the real economy. It will focus on five key issues, inspired by the Global 2030 Agenda, where there is significant opportunity to mainstream and scale existing efficiency solutions, generate jobs and economic growth in low-carbon and resource-efficient industries, and create long-lasting economic and social value on a global, macroeconomic level. These include:
With its Summit in Paris, which will provide stakeholders with sessions on topics such as Low-carbon Supply Chains, Visions and Strategies for the Circular Economy, Sustainable Production, Urban Data Mining and Analysis, and City-Business Relations and Local Innovative Financing…our focus is on creating new marketplaces based on the SDGs – through engaging governments, cities, businesses, innovators and investors.
Our new 12-14 December date also means that we can build upon the critical developments during COP23 and our resource-efficiency strand at the World Climate Summit.
As a 2017 WE Summit Partner you have the opportunity to input into the process of refining our Summit programme and guaranteed profile for your organisation as a thought-leader in the low-carbon, resource-efficient marketplace, with more than 2000 industry experts, businesses and investors expected to attend.
