Sustainability – a new guiding principle for companies

Dear Community,

On Tuesday, 7 September 2021, we will be back from our summer break and are ready to start our IMPACT FESTIVAL. On this occasion, we would like to address the more than ever urgent topic of sustainability and focus on the extent to which companies can bring about changes within their organisation or their stakeholders.

We are therefore very pleased to welcome Prof. Dr. René Schmidpeter, Co-Founder of M3TRIX and Professor at the IUBH Munich. He will show to what extent sustainability in general is gaining acceptance as a new management paradigm.

Furthermore, Prof. Dr. Herwig Buchholz, Global Head of Group Corporate Sustainability at Merck, will give us an insight into the sustainability strategy of the Darmstadt-based chemical and pharmaceutical group.

We are also looking forward to meeting our dear colleague Mara Steinbrenner. She is part of the IMPACT FESTIVAL‘s project management team and a fresh Master’s graduate from the Innovation and Global Sustainable Development programme at Lund University (Sweden). She will give an overview of what we can expect at the IMPACT FESTIVAL from 16.09.-17.09.2021.

The evening will be moderated by Matthias Lais, Managing Director at main incubator.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

Your main incubator team
