The IPBN is confident that there are myriad opportunities to improve energy efficiency throughout every sector of the economy, whether it is buildings, transportation, industry, energy generation or otherwise.
With this in mind, we assembled an exciting program for the fourth Edition of our annual Sustainability Conference to focus on these solutions while simultaneously exploring the importance of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), the impact of Smart Cities on a greener future, and how technology can aid advancement in that direction.
We were delighted to welcome all speakers, panelists, and moderators as well as H.E.Ralph Victory, the Ambassador of Ireland to Portugal, Mr. Neale Richmond T.D., Ireland’s Minister for Employment Affairs and Retail Business and all the IPBN Executive Partners Brookes Property Group, The Portugal News, Skanstec, Ardanis, Konceptness, and PwC Portugal during St. Patrick's Day, Friday, March 17 from 9h to 13h at the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Portugal (CCIP) in Lisbon.
The agenda of the conference can be found below and there was plenty of time for networking during coffee breaks where members and guests exchanged ideas, views and contacts..
