BTH to Cooperate with World Trade Centers on Sustainability!
On August 6th, BTH's Vice Chancellor Ursula Hass signed a Letter of Intent with the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) Coordinator for Northern Europe, Anders Berner. The Letter of Intent outlines the start of a new collaborative relationship where BTH will participate in the WTCA's Go Green team. Together, the parties will develop a platform together where BTH can share and present news, solutions, seminars, best practice and education to the WTCA organization, members and others.
The WTCA is a not-for-profit, non-political association that fosters the WTC concept and develops inter-WTC cooperative programs. It now represents 326 members in 92 countries, all of which are involved in the development or operation of World Trade Centers or in providing related services. These World Trade Centers service more than 750,000 international trading corporations.
This offers BTH a great opportunity to showcase our well-respected research and education related to sustainable development. In the future, the connection between BTH researches, educators, and students to these 750,000 organizations around the world can surely open up new opportunities for further practical application of our sustainability-related competencies.
"BTH is now well-known for their research and education related to sustainability. We are excited to work with them on this Go Green initiative. Already at the World Trade Center in Malmö, we have built one of the most energy efficient buildings, and we hope to work with BTH to see what additional steps towards sustainability we can take," stated Anders Berner.
