In 2015, world leaders agreed upon 17 sustainable development goals. What role will engineers play in developing the transformative solutions needed to reach these goals?
SKF is sparking the conversation and spreading ideas with a new series of a knowledge-sharing symposium called “Let’s Talk”. Industry experts are discussing industry trends such as Digitalization, Industry Ecology and Smart Robotics in front of a live audience at leading universities.
The latest “Let’s Talk” event focuses on Industrial Ecology, a systematic approach to sustainable development and the circular economy. Speakers include:
John Holmberg, Professor and Vice President of Sustainable Development, Chalmers University of Technology
Christoph Schwärzler, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy, Bombardier Transportation; Lindsay Berg, Industrial Ecology Masters Student, Chalmers University of Technology, and Filip Rosengren, Railway Segment Manager, SKF.
“When we look at the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals, they are all important and we need to contribute to all of them, but I see three major areas which I would like to highlight”, says Filip Rosengren, SKF. “First, within industrialization and innovation, offering our customers products that can reduce energy consumption such as the BeyondZero portfolio. Second, within our own energy consumption and how we reduce overall emissions in our operations, and finally with global partnerships, to join forces and challenge old business models.”
The recorded symposiums are available on SKF’s YouTube channel. Further information can also be found on our website: www.skf.com or by following the hashtag #LetsTalkIndustrialEcology across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
More “Let’s Talk” videos will be published in the upcoming months.
