Nikola Nikačević, the founder of Eon+, delivered a lecture on climate challenges and sustainable energy at the Millennium Goals: Sustainable development and ecology, which took place on May 12. The initiative came from the American Chamber of Commerce in Serbia (AmCham) and the lecture focused on consequences of production and use of energy from fossil fuels on climate changes, along with possible courses of action.
Nikačević presented the latest data, trends and projections, along with initiatives and priorities in reducing negative impacts and also stressed the necessity of a joint action and synergy from all the factors – state, economy, society and individuals. A particular accent was placed on technological innovations, which can make a significant contribution to the transition towards the “green” and circular economy, and the Envigo software, which aspires to those goals, was used as an example.
The one-year educational program AmChamps brings together students of the final year at various faculties of the Belgrade University, along with junior managers of the companies – members of AmCham. The idea of promoting sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, millennium goals, global agreement and the importance of environmental protection was born during the program, through training, workshops, lectures and tasks. The convention at the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy was the result and the final event.
Besides Nikola Nikačević, the consultant to the president of the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia Siniša Mitrović also held a lecture on the Global Agreement initiative. Afterwards, the participants of the AmChamps program held a joint lecture on sustainable development. Finally, managers of the AmCham companies presented examples of good business practices and corporate social responsibility.
