Panel discussion on unlocking the energy challenge to confront climate challenge and global warming. Global climate change, a scarcity of resources and the accelerating energy demand from emerging markets such as China or India pose significant challenges to global and local energy supplies. The question as to how supplies can be secured for the future is becoming increasingly urgent. In this context, we dealt with the topic of “Building a Sustainable Future: Unlocking the Energy Challenge” during the Harvard Business Review webinar / panel discussion in partnership with Future Influencers, a community initiated by Siemens.

Location: Doha, Quatar. Event date: 2012-12-06. Participants: Barbara Kux (Siemens AG), Jennifer Morgan (World Resources Institute), Gregory Unruh (The Lincoln Center for Ethics in Global Management) and Anna Leidreiter, Kali Taylor and Gatien Bon (Future Influencers Community Members).
