AIMday Sustainability

Our planet’s life support systems are under strain. A growing population demands more energy, food and living space than ever before. Climate change has exacerbated this threat. New technologies can offer solutions to sustainability problems or replace unsustainable alternatives.

The vision for this AIMday is to allow participating companies and organisations to gain new perspectives, rethink and outline approaches for their business and processes to increase resource and energy efficiency; substitute for biobased, biodegradable, and renewable resources; and prevent and reduce carbon emissions, waste and negative environmental impacts.
