Davos this year was all about climate change, sustainability and stakeholders. For us, as we are focused on sustainable technologies (AgriFoodTech, plastic elimination and TextileTech) a lot of the action took place under the SDG Tent (we warmly thank the organizers). The quality of the events was outstanding and so was the variety of topics. It crystallised the issues of who is paving the way and what (if anything) is taking place.
One thing was for certain, not enough is being done and investments taking place are grossly insufficient. The private sector needs to be more supported and de-risked.

It is difficult to have a day pass-by without being exposed to matters related to sustainability, plastics or global warming. The level of awareness is extremely elevated but the relevant information often lacking. We must distinguish between what is eye-catching and what is scientifically proven. Solutions are emerging, we (collectively) need to invest in them.
