As part of the digital event series "Impetus for CDR", various areas and concrete applications in CDR will once again be highlighted from Wednesday, 6 October 2021. ‘CDR’ refers to voluntary corporate activities which extend above and beyond the current legal requirements while helping to actively shape the digital world for the benefit of society as a whole.

Each event consists of a keynote speech followed by an exchange in which the participants' questions are answered. The common thread throughout the series is the fields of action identified by the CDR Initiative: Data handling, climate and resource protection, education, employee involvement, and inclusion (more information is available here).

The event series is aimed at participants from business, science, politics and associations as well as interested consumers, and is moderated by ConPolicy GmbH.

Recordings of past events can be found here.
