Session II with our CSR Student Team:
Growing Greener Cities – Biodiversity & Urban Planning

Join the CSR Student Team in our Students-for-Students Lecture and discuss Urban Gardening, Biodiversity and Sustainable City Planning!

As our world evolves quickly, urban cities are continuously growing and our rich biodiversity is threatened by human activities, pollution, climate change and population growth. To protect our ecosystems and therefore biodiversity our cities need to become greener.

Urban Gardening – a process to grow plants of all types in an urban environment supports the vision to preserve biodiversity and provides environmental, social and health benefits for its beneficiaries. Furthermore, it can benefit the society in the difficult times. The city of Nantes after the Covid-19 crisis has made out 50 green public sites, vegetable gardens to offer it to the people in need. People that lost their jobs and don’t have enough money to eat fresh food were helped. In total 25 tonnes of vegetables have been harvested in 25 000m². There are already so many more great pilot projects and examples of this out there!

In our presentation we will explain the concepts of biodiversity, how Urban Gardening helps to preserve our biodiversity, examples, tips and tricks for your own Urban Gardening projects and plans for the CBS Urban Gardening Project.

Session I: 24. Sep 2020, 6-7:30, online

Hannah Helmke studied International Business at CBS. She is now founder and managing director of right. based on science and winner of the Next Economy Award in the category “Change”.

Session I with Hannah Helmke (CBS Alumna & Founder and CEO of right. based on science):
What is the temperature of a company and how can it be reduced to a healthy below 2°C? An Economic Climate Impact Analysis

Climate Impact Analyses are necessary to make the contribution of human activities to climate change tangible and to derive appropriate mitigation strategies. As global warming is becoming more and more of an economic reality, robust tools for measuring the impact are particularly important. The science-based X-Degree Compatibility (XDC) model from right. based on science calculates the contribution of an economic unit, be it a company or a whole portfolio, to global warming under consideration of different scenarios. The result answers the question by how many °C the earth would warm up until 2050 if every company would operate as emission-intensive as the one under consideration. This analysis helps companies to better steer their activities towards a <2°C world.

In her presentation, Hannah will explain more about why it is so urgent for businesses to contribute to the 2°C goal of the Paris Agreement, introduce the Climate Impact Analysis using the XDC model and discuss different use cases. In addition, the “right. open” project will be presented: here the code of the XDC model will be shared with scientists to enable an open professional discussion of the model.
