Session: Sustainability, Hydrogen and Renewable Energy, 15:45

The Germany-Scotland Forum on Responsible Green Growth will cover top-level
climate, trade and investment priorities, as well as Environmental Social Governance. Panels will focus on sustainability, hydrogen and renewable energy, as well as a more
technology-oriented discussion how data and digitalisation are empowering companies’ journey towards sustainability and process efficiency. As Whisky - Scotland’s most famous product - has been leading the way in reducing CO2 emissions, moving towards powering and heating distilleries through renewable sources and using organic ingredients and low carbon materials, a whisky and gin tasting will highlight products created in Scotland’s greenest distilleries.

The Forum is hosted by the Scottish Government Hub and Scottish Development International (SDI) in Germany together with Offenburg University. Participants will meet speakers from Scottish and German companies and institutions who are playing an important role in the fields of responsible green growth, data and digitalisation. SDI is the international arm of Scotland’s Economic Development Agencies. SDI is helping Scottish companies to develop international trade and advise them on doing business in Germany, as well as supporting German companies who want to set-up, invest, conduct R&D or find business and innovation partners in Scotland.
