Young Energy Europe cooperates with KÖVET in Hungary

In late November the German-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Knowledge Centre participated in a conference of the KÖVET Association for Sustainable Economies on the topic of Postgrowth Economy. KÖVET is a non-profit association of 54 Hungarian companies and 25 partners from science and civil society who exchange practical and solution-oriented information on topics as corporate climate protection, environmental management systems and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The Hungarian team of Young Energy Europe presented the concept of energy scouts to companies and stakeholders at the conference and explored future possibilities for cooperation. Together with KÖVET, Young Energy Europe is planning a joint workshop in spring 2020. During the workshop Hungarian energy scouts will share their knowledge with current participants and KÖVET member companies in order to foster the dialogue between the two initiatives. As the common denominator of Young Energy Europe and KÖVET is practice-oriented climate and environmental protection in companies, numerous synergies will result from the cooperation.

KÖVET is the Hungarian partner of the EUKI project ALLIES, whose aim is it to activate investments in cost-effective energy efficiency projects by involving local organizations as investors, intermediaries and beneficiaries.
