Eco-Innovation Summit: Christiana Figueres Keynotes


The Eco-Innovation Summit convened under the timely theme The Road to Durban: Towards an Ambitious UN Deal and Low-Carbon Economy. Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), delivered The 2011 Robert Schuman Lecture and made a passionate call for Europe and the world to re-double its effort to mitigate climate change and lay the foundation for a low-carbon economy. Her speech was complimented by interventions from Harry van Dorenmalen, chairman of IBM Europe, and Harry Verhaar, senior director for energy and climate change at Philips, who both serve as co-chairs of the Lisbon Council’s Eco-Innovators Network.
