'Going Green', a five-day exhibition organised by the Danish Embassy in Bangladesh, showcases green initiatives that help promote equitable and sustainable economic growth.

The exhibition - held at Bay's Edge Gallery in Dhaka - exemplifies Denmark's concept of sustainability, according to Danish Ambassador Winnie Estrup Petersen.

"We are pleased to share with Bangladesh a holistic approach to sustainable living that includes social goals like responsible business, good governance, equality, and inclusion," the ambassador said.

Over the past forty years, Denmark has enhanced its economic growth while lowering resource use and CO2 emissions - demonstrating that green economies do indeed generate jobs.

Denmark is a leader in clean technologies and green economic growth, which puts it in a good position to assist Bangladesh in its transition to a greener, more sustainable society.

The exhibition opened on October 16 and ended yesterday (October 20).

Four panel discussions were held at the exhibition that highlighted the main obstacles to and opportunities presented by a green transition for the public and business sectors of Bangladesh.

The first day's panel discussion, titled 'Sustainable Transition and Resource Efficiency Perspectives', was led by Bay Developments Limited and featured representatives from other private sector businesses. During the discussion, participants shared their ideas and discussed the steps they had taken to move towards more sustainable practises. Danish businesses added to the conversation by outlining their own procedures.

Novo Nordisk led the second panel discussion, which had as its theme 'Better Health, Better Tomorrow'. They emphasised what could be done to obtain greater health and how it may contribute to a sustainable society.

The third panel discussion, on 'Smart and Green Connectivity', which was headed by Nokia, gave an overview of how digital inclusion affects sustainability and inclusive growth. The panellists also discussed the importance of working together to achieve widespread connection and good digital practises.

A green future was the topic of the fourth panel discussion, which was titled 'Water and Energy Efficiency for a Green Future'. Using facilitators like partnerships for collaboration, Grundfos took the lead in the discussion by emphasising sustainable solutions that lessen resource scarcity and maximise the advantages offered by existing infrastructure.

Participants, who represented local investment agencies, banks, and financial institutions, as well as Danish and Bangladeshi infrastructure developers, heard about Danish models of inclusive and sustainable infrastructure.

The panellists and visitors also discussed the necessity of increasing investment in the "green sector" to aid Bangladesh's transition to a greener economy.

In order to reduce carbon footprints and achieve sustainable growth, Denmark is at the forefront. This is particularly pertinent in the current situation.

Denmark serves as an example and a useful resource, especially for Bangladesh, which is converting to more environmentally-friendly practises.

The exhibition and associated events concentrated on resource-efficient services, digital and physical connectedness to energy, and sustainable and green development.

Innovation for a greener future is aided by the proper blend of green technologies, knowledge transfer, and capacity building. These are essential for Bangladesh and other climate-vulnerable nations to increase productivity, economic growth, and quality of life.
