With this GreenTech-Knowledge Hub, we provide an inspiring global space for practitioners, policy makers, entrepreneurs, environmentalists and interested people to exchange experiences, good practices, learnings, and innovative approaches. We bring together the experience and knowledge of our global partners to build communities of practice for the deployment of sustainable infrastructure and technologies for greener economies and better lives.
