2014 Testimonials

“The event was outstanding. From the themes discussed, learnings from the speakers to the agenda and schedule. The event organization and support to attendees was very special.”

Carlos d’Arce Junior, Marketing Director,  New Holland Agriculture Latin America

“The Sustainable Innovation Forum brought together different perspectives in a very stimulating way. We, the insurers, look at climate change from a risk manager’s perspective – risks for individuals, companies, governments and the economy. It is therefore very valuable to hear how other businesses and the public sector are tackling the challenges ahead; because risk management solutions can only be developed together.”

Karsten Löffler, Manging Director, Allianz Climate

“The Sustainable Innovation Forum is my favourite event at the COP. It’s a great showcase of companies, cities and individuals who are getting on with the important matter of reducing emissions, regardless of what’s going on in the negotiations. Positive, practical and inspiring.”

Jane Burston, Head, Centre for Carbon Measurement, National Physical Laboratory

"I found the Sustainable Innovation Forum to be a stimulating, informative and practical window into business perspectives on climate solutions -- engaged and enlightening!"

Carl Pope, Special Advisor to Michael Bloomberg & Principal, Inside Straight Strategies


"The 2014 SIF event brought together a diverse group of stakeholders with a common goal:  combining our range of expertise in many fields to address pressing climate change issues.  It was a surprise to some that Sealed Air was there to talk about food packaging and hygiene—but once the connection to preventing food waste was understood, reducing food waste was acknowledged as an obvious strategy to help address climate change needs, as well as promote human nutrition and safety.  I was pleased to be involved in this year’s interactive and engaging conference and I look forward to seeing outcomes of the conversations we started at future events." 

Ron Cotterman, Sealed Air Corporation


"An excellent event. Many high level speakers and networking opportunities."

Roberto Guzmán Gutiérrez MBA, Advisor to the Minister of the Environment and Energy of Costa Rica


"An important opportunity to learn in a single place about developments and actions in many areas, and also for networking."

Manuel Olivera, Regional Director for Latin America, C40 Cities
