Enhanced business opportunities at the 2020 World Future Energy Summit

While every country has its own specific challenges around sustainability, the biggest problems are spread (and therefore shared) internationally. The warming of our planet, rising sea levels, drastic reductions in groundwater and potable water supplies, rising air pollution, these are issues that do not stop for national borders or boundaries. In short – global problems need global solutions.

That’s why the World Future Energy Summit has been designed from the ground up to facilitate collaboration, bringing together the brightest minds and best resourced enterprises from the public and private sectors to take on these truly world-changing issues. Each year, the summit’s networking programme Business Connect is enhanced to facilitate new partnerships and create sustainable business opportunities.

At the 2019 summit, Business Connect facilitated over 11,000 meetings between attendees, including matching up 212 buyers from 12 different countries who were looking for specific sustainability-based solutions for their projects.
