At this year’s climate summit in Vienna, the city has prominent visitors: parts of the Biden cabinet have come, and Vice President of the European Commission Frans Zimmermann has also accepted the invitation to Vienna. Other guests include Climate Minister Leonore Gewessler (Greens), Federal President Van der Bellen, moderator Joko Winterscheidt and climate activist Luisa Neubauer.
In addition to the speech by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guerres, Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared as the main guest and found clear words: “Air pollution kills more people than malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, terrorism, alcohol or war”. We have the technology to ban fossil fuels. We need to leave our fossil fuel addiction behind.” Technology is the solution to the problem. You would owe it to millions of people around the world – including the children growing up in the Ukrainian bunkers.
The event is organized by the Austrian real estate investor Klemens Hallmann. With his sustainable construction company SÜBA, Hallmann is one of the pioneers in resource-saving and sustainable construction. “The real estate industry is responsible for around 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. It therefore requires the determination to anchor sustainability and energy efficiency as standards in the entire real estate industry and to move from being the polluter to being a role model. The time has come to usher in the era of sustainability,” the entrepreneur told Leadersnet.
