With COP26 just around the corner, the topic of sustainability is on everyone’s mind - and we are excited to bring you our first ever sustainability newsletter!
While Australia is struggling to decide on what to present in Glasgow, Austria has long been a driving force in events such as the COP - and this year will be no exception. As part of Mission Innovation 2.0Austria and the United Kingdom are looking to introduce a new mission to decarbonize heavy industry during COP26 – an initiative we hope will be joined by Australia. Did you know that Austria is a leader in green steel engineering and production?

Australia is the world’s third-largest exporter of fossil fuels and one of the last holdouts among developed nations to publicly commit to net zero emissions by 2050. It is lagging behind continental Europe on energy saving measures in particular in the construction space and is struggling to catch up with leading nations in developing a more circular economy. However, the decisions made in Australia, its states and its companies are not only of national, but global importance. 

We are proud that some of Austria's leading GreenTech companies and their Australian partners are on the forefront of what we like to call the “Australian Energiewende” and have provided outstanding technology for the recycling and waste industry. But we also feel that there should be more exchange of information on our respective challenges and solutions, and more bilateral cooperation during which Austria could become a gateway into the EU, the world's largest integrated market. 

To help you find your future partners, we recently launched the newest version of our Fresh View – a guide to #GreenTechAustria. As always, you can also reach out to us at any stage if you would like to have some additional information or be connected to an Austrian player.   

Take some time to have a look at the business opportunities featured in the full newsletter, available for download below, and learn more about some great Austrian companies that could become your future partner.
