year, with the potential to extract twice as much economic value from the energy we use today. As a pioneer of sustainability, Singapore has already reduced their emissions by 37 percent between 2000 and 2014, and supported by Danfoss technology, progressive solutions can be implemented across the region to save more energy, reduce emissions and lower costs for developers.” “Denmark is not only committed to make a strong response to climate changes – we want to push global actions and ambitions. To step up the engagement across the field, we continuously seek to foster and strengthen public-private partnerships ensuring green growth and a sustainable future for all,” said Dorte Bech Vizard, Ambassador of Denmark to Singapore. In the afternoon, the Summit was divided into three different track events on Commercial Buildings, Cold Chain and Electrification/Marine, to focus on specific solutions and technologies for the participants from the diverse industries.
