ETtalks wins Polish Golden Clip and drives on at COP24

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

The international platform and series of conferences created by Danfoss aimed at inspiring innovative thinking and developing solutions on climate and energy issues called #ETtalks has received the Golden Clip in the Business-to-Business PR category - the communication Oscar in Poland.

Engineering Tomorrow talks (#ETtalks) brings together top speakers and visionaries to inspire the world of engineering to design today in a way that doesn’t compromise tomorrow. Danfoss are bringing energy and climate topics to installers, construction engineers and city planners. The very people that turn talk into action.

The project began in April this year with a series of conferences in Warsaw and in Kiev with the participation of eminent experts who are frequent speakers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Climate Summit, NYC Climate Week or TEDx.

“This initiative shows how to build a bridge between visionary policy makers and business to truly engineer a better tomorrow. By combining the technology know-how of the industry with bold climate ambitions we can turn talk into action,” says Kenth Kærhøg, Senior Vice President, Group Communication, Danfoss.

In December, the #ETtalks project is continued during the COP24 climate summit in Katowice.

This time, key experts on climate talks will provide short video interviews in the form of carpool. They are run by Ralph Talmont, TEDx curator in Eastern Europe, riding the #ETtalksDRIVE red Tesla on the streets of Katowice bringing conference participants from A to B. We will be able to hear Rachel Kyte, CEO of the Sustainable Energy for All and Special Representative of the UN Secretary General; Marcene Mitchell, Global Head of Strategy International Finance Corporation; Jean Pascal van Ypersele, former IPCC President; Monica Frassoni, President European Alliance to Save Energy, Michał Kurtyka, Secretary of State in the Ministry of the Environment, Jerzy Buzek, chairman of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy at the European Parliament.

According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), we have only twelve years to make bold decisions and stop climate change. We do not have time to conduct climate discussions behind closed doors. It is Danfoss’ ambition to involve the widest possible group in the climate debate.

Videos #ETtalksDRIVE with climate debate leaders will be available at, as well as published by Business Insider Polska, Onet and promoted through social media.
