What we're about

Welcome to our Tech Innovations Meetup Group, powered by Consulting at Deloitte, Germany.

Innovations in technology are enabling new business opportunities and disrupting current business models. But what is behind all these tech buzzwords like IoT, Robotics, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence?
Together we will explore the impact of tech-enabled innovations and their real-life use cases.

Driven by our keynote speakers and technology experts, we want to discuss and exchange experiences with you. Not to forget, there will be enough time for networking, beers and pizza.

Join our community to share and grow know-how on tech innovations.

* First meetup is coming soon. So don’t miss it and let’s meetup!

Is Blockchain the missing piece in the puzzle of climate change mitigation?

“There’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent threat of changing climate.” – Barack Obama The importance of climate and the negative effects of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere have been stressed by many. Just recently, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has published a report stating that wildlife populations have declined by over half in less than 50 years. And in a recent UN report, the organization cautioned against the risk of droughts, floods and other climate-related disasters that will have severe consequences for the environment and communities should the global warming not be kept to a maximum of 1.5 Celcius. In light of the 1.5 Celcius goal, 2015 has been a historic milestone, as for the first time in Paris, developed and developing countries alike agreed to collectively work towards the objectives stipulated in the Paris Climate Agreement. It has proven difficult in recent years to effectively tackle emerging climate-related challenges across the globe. Policy makers have been increasingly looking in the direction of innovative technologies for developing solutions to address the factors that collectively lead to mitigating climate change. One of the emerging technologies in this field is Blockchain. Globally, start-ups and established players, mainly in the Transport, Energy and Agriculture industries, are not only developing Blockchain-based solutions, but have already introduced them to their customers on a commercial scale. These solutions span from from the eMobility industry with decentral charging networks and Mobility as a Service platforms to food origin tracking services, helping to protect fisheries and the biodiversity in threatened regions. In our first edition of Deloitte’s Tech-Innovations Meetup series we would like to invite you to learn about the experiences of our industry experts, as well as to discuss potential solutions and opportunities. So let's meetup and find out if Blockchain is the missing piece in the puzzle of climate change mitigation. Our speakers: 1) Craig Davis (Clean Green Fast) 2) Jannik Lockl (Fraunhofer FIT Blockchain Lab) 3) Guo Yir Tang & Can Öge (Deloitte Blockchain Institute)
