The current decade is pivotal in tackling climate change. Achieving ‘Net Zero’ CO2 emissions by 2050 (or before) requires unprecedent resource mobilization and scaling up innovation to achieve drastic reductions in CO2 emissions by 2030. The Richard Normann lecture is co-hosted with Normann Partners and will reflect on how the pioneer work of Richard Normann on value constellations inform current work on ecosystem orchestration to mobilize resources towards disruptive technologies with a verifiable and meaningful impact on the decarbonization of our economies.
