Ingolstadt, June 18, 2021 – #celebratechange – for two days, everything at the 2021 GREENTECH FESTIVAL in Berlin revolved around innovative technologies for a sustainable and climate-friendly way of life. And Audi once again participated in the GREENTECH FESTIVAL from June 16 to 18 as a founding partner, where the company demonstrated that its products, processes, and materials are all about combating climate change and promoting sustainability with the help of digitalization. For example, visitors learned how Audi is enabling the expansion of renewable energy sources, how its resource-friendly approach to plastics works, and the importance of artificial intelligence in the supply chain for its sustainability strategy. Nico Rosberg and the two engineers Marco Voigt and Sven Krüger are the founders of the GREENTECH FESTIVAL.
This year, the 2021 GREENTECH FESTIVAL was held as a hybrid event both live on site at Kraftwerk Berlin and digitally on visitors’ computers, laptops, and smartphones. The lineup included keynotes, panel discussions, boot camps, and deep dives. On June 17, Oliver Hoffmann, Board Member for Technical Development at Audi, offered insights as a keynote speaker into how Audi is promoting the expansion of renewable energy sources.
For Henrik Wenders, Head of Audi Brand, the 2021 Greentech Festival was an outstanding opportunity to present innovative technologies and concepts in action to increase sustainability and combat climate change. “Last year, we showed how we want to minimize carbon emissions as much as possible in manufacturing and the supply chain; this year, we showed that Audi also has its eye on other products, processes, and materials. We are convinced that sustainable technologies will become the enabler of a livable future and the mobility of tomorrow. Sustainability is deeply ingrained in our mindset – and we want to actively shape it and inspire others to do so as well.” This is why Audi entered into a partnership with photographer and environmental activist Sebastian Copeland, whose images focus on the beauty of nature that is unquestionably worth protecting. Audi exhibited a selection of his images as part of its appearance at the trade show. In addition, the focus was on the following topics:
