10:45 AM – 11:00 AM

  Talk show stage opens
Welcoming remarks and introduction to this year’s topic – The Future is Now! – by moderator Ane Cortzen.

11:00 AM – 11:30 AM

  Labeling and screening sustainability
69% of Danish consumers use ecolabels to guide their purchasing, but what can certification programs like the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel do exactly? And what can’t they do? What does the furniture industry predict in terms of ecolabeling and what does the future hold? This and much more will be debated by Jakob Zeuthen, from Danish Chamber of Commerce and author of the book Mærk din forretning on strategic use of ecolabels, Heidi Bugge, from Ecolabelling Denmark and Jakob Aaen from Målbar, creator of a tool for furniture lifecycle screening. The debate is mediated by Steffen Max Høgh, Sustainability Director at HOLMRIS B8.

12:00 AM – 12:30 AM

  Sourcing with our hearts – while going green
Everyone purchases products and services, and many businesses also have a sustainability strategy. But how to merge sourcing and sustainability so that sourcing is driven not only by price, volume and quality but also by social responsibility, biodiversity, climate action and other green pledges? This talk focuses both on green public procurements, as exemplified by the City of Aarhus represented by Head of Public Procurement, Anette Juhl Winther and DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) represented by Petrine Jonsson Egholm, chief consultant, along with inputs from Ecolabelling Denmark represented by senior advisor on public procurements Rikke Dreyer on how private-sector businesses can flex more sustainability muscle in their purchasing. Steffen Max Høgh will be moderating the debate.

01:00 PM – 01:30 PM

  Design industry following famed chef’s lead
Celebrity chef Claus Meyer put Denmark on the global culinary map by helping to pioneer the sustainability principle of sourcing ingredients locally. He explains the philosophy behind restoring pride in local produce, while architect and partner at BIG Architects, David Zahle, translates the sustainability approach and mindset from the culinary world into an architectural and manufacturing context. Moderator: Ane Cortzen

02:00 PM – 02:30 PM

  Sustainable interiors
How can the buildings and construction sector, the biggest waste and emissions culprit in Denmark, go green and become more sustainable? How can architects create sustainable interiors for the benefit of the natural environment and our quality of life? Vibeke Grupe Larsen, architect, business and industry researcher and author of a corporate guide to getting started with the 17 Global Goals (De 17 Verdensmål – Sådan kommer I i gang), and Elisabeth Hermann Frederiksen, Head of Sustainability at real estate company NREP, share opinions, insights and experience on this topic. Moderator: Ane Cortzen

03:00 PM – 03:30 PM

  How to attract, retain and manage generations Y & Z
We’re in the midst of significant generational change, and the younger generations have a different understanding of what it means to work and what they want out of it. Emilia Van Hauen, cultural sociologist, introduces you to what drives the younger generations and provides specific tools to help you create an organization where all generations thrive.

04:00 PM – 04:30 PM

  Sustainability is the business model of the future
To ensure the profitability of your business, you may need to rethink and realign your business model. The linear egotrip is a thing of the past! Future consumers, customers, business partners, colleagues, legislation and up and coming generations are done with “more”; they want “better”. And if you’re not doing that, they’ll find someone who is. The good news is, aligning your business model for the sustainability of the future is easier than you might think – and more inspiring and profitable too. Maybe you’ve already started? You just haven’t realized. Henrik Good Hovgaard, future studies expert from Universal Futurist, shakes things up for us with an impassioned peptalk from the future and real-world examples and principles to take on board and apply in making sustainability your business model.

05:45 PM – 06:15 PM

  Jonatan Spang
Comedian, actor, podcaster, screenwriter, director … Jonatan Spang’s career is multifaceted, and last year, the celebrity entertainer wowed viewers with his towering talent on TV, hosting his satirical take on news stories in Tæt På Sandheden on the national DR2 channel. Benefit from chuckles unlimited as Spang puts the sector and consumer society through the satirical wringer.
