Transatlantic Tech Dialogues

Transatlantic Climate Change Policy

What Can the Tech Sector Contribute?

The climate crisis was one of the most hotly contested issues in the German election campaign. While new climate targets have been set at the European level, President Biden has also prioritized the issue on the other side of the Atlantic and has already launched several climate initiatives. Time and again, there is also discussion about digitalization in climate protection. Climate and green tech are also on the agenda of the new EU-US Trade and Technology Council.

The discussion focuses on the role of the tech sector in climate protection and the panel speaks about the following questions: Where is the greatest potential in terms of energy efficiency, reusability and recycling, and how can the climate-damaging effects of digital technologies be reduced? What political measures can we expect after the German elections and, above all, how can innovative technologies strengthen transatlantic cooperation on climate protection?
