On May 28.and 29. the R20 Austrian World Summit 2019 took place at Hofburg and numerous other locations in Vienna, Austria.

Numerous celebrities and well known climate activists ranging from Arnold SCHWARZENEGGER to Greta THUNBERG, as well as UN Secretary General  António GUTERRES and state presidents such as Filipe NYUSI (Mozambique), Nana AKUFO-ADDO (GHANA), János Áder (Hungary), Raimonds VÈJONIS (Latvia) und Alexander VAN DER BELLEN (Austria) called for swift action on climate change.

In the run-up to the event the organizers BRAINBOWS had identified 10 innovative entrepreneurs (the real „Action Heroes“) as winners of the international tender„Mobilizing Finance to Deliver Climate Action“, which held project presentations during the event.

One of these 10 prize-winning climate-actors was EnTri Consulting’s Dutch client African Clean Energy (ACE).

A short criticism of the otherwise excellent event:

  • The companies that actually do something about climate change were given 2 minutes of speaking time each.
  • Those who stated with a lot of PR & press attention that something needs to be done were allowed to speak much longer.

A Special Report („White Paper“) was published in the frame of the R20 Austrian World Summit 2019, in which the 10 winning projects are presented.

Success factors and policy recommendations are also included in the report, for the development of which EnTri Consulting has made a dedicated contribution.
