On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), ConPolicy has organized and conducted a stakeholder dialogue involving companies, science and civil society. The background to the stakeholder dialogue was the environmental digital agenda of the Ministry with its objective of orienting online trade more towards the goal of sustainable consumption.
The event took place on October 28, 2020, and was well received by around 70 participants. The institutes IÖW, ConPolicy and Ökopol presented current research projects in the field of sustainable consumption and online trade. Subsequently, a panel discussion explored ways to more sustainability in online trade. Participants in the panel discussion were Dr. Albrecht von Sonntag, founder and managing director of idealo, Benjamin Köhler, head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Otto, Christoph Wenk-Fischer, managing director of bevh, Prof. Dr. Tilman Santarius, Professor for Social-Ecological Transformation and Sustainable Digitization at the TU Berlin, and Dr. Ulf Jaeckel, head of division at BMU. The event was moderated by Prof. Dr. Christian Thorun, Managing Director of ConPolicy.
