The conversation hosted by Hanne Österberg will reimagine innovation, focusing on services that enable individual choices when it comes to smart, sustainable and healthy homes and lifestyles.
Energy efficient buildings are at the center of major policy plans all over the world. How can private companies foster a transition towards more environmentally friendly technologies for our houses? And how can we begin to shift discourse from solely sustainable housing to sustainable living? At the end of this session, participants would have used known facts and figures to identify gaps and build a mindmap of solutions and ideas.
During this ongoing global pandemic, people are evidently placing higher values on health wellbeing over financial profit. We are all in a unique moment in history to reflect on how sustainable our lifestyles are.

Hanne’s reflections concern public awareness towards practical ways of sustainable living. She asks herself what her company, active in this sector, can do to motivate people to make changes in their houses to become more energy efficient. She realizes that the private sector, along with the government and individual citizens, have a role in successfully carrying out this transition. Given her role within a private institution engaged in this sector, Hanne acknowledges the role private actors have in fostering awareness among citizens on this topic.
