Max Viessmann to speak at COP26 Climate Action event

Viessmann co-chief executive officer Max Viessmann is to speak at the COP26 event, the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2021, of which the company is a sponsor. COP26 takes place in Glasgow on 31 October-12 November 2021, and Max Viessmann will talk about a range of topics, including:
• How the building sector, through decarbonising heating and cooling, can play a critical role in reaching climate targets
• The importance of making such activities socially just and beneficial and attractive to users and homeowners
• The role that hydrogen and green gases can play in decarbonising the energy mix and ensuring continuation of a reliable energy supply
• Viessmann’s own decarbonisation progress and future net-zero ambitions.

Graham Russell, Viessmann’s UK managing director, says: “Viessmann, driven by its family owners, has lived and breathed a sustainability strategy for well over a century, demonstrating through its own operations how industrial businesses can achieve and even surpass carbon targets using heating and cooling technology already on the market today.

“It is most appropriate therefore that Max Viessmann is invited to speak at Climate Action’s Sustainable Innovation Forum, representing the heating industry at the top table with policymakers, heads of industries, NGOs and other bodies helping to shape the future.

“The COP26 summit is the perfect opportunity to focus on the decarbonisation of the UK’s energy and buildings. With many electric and hydrogen-fuelled climate technologies available today to take over from fossil fuels, we are proud to be playing a critical role in the energy transition.”

The Sustainable Innovation Forum is organised by Climate Action, an organisation that aims to create and build partnerships between businesses, governments and public bodies to accelerate international sustainable development and advance the green economy.
