AmCham's support for the Summer Climate Academy

We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the incredible opportunity to participate, along with our esteemed members, in the Summer Climate Academy under the auspices of President Zuzana Čaputová. It was an honor to contribute to such a vital initiative dedicated to addressing the pressing challenges of climate change.

On Day 3 of the Academy, we organized discussions with our expert members, who have answered insightful questions from the students. A heartfelt thank you to all the speakers for generously sharing their expertise and knowledge, making the discussions truly insightful and enriching: Michal Pinter (U. S. Steel Košice s.r.o.), Olejníková Martina (Veolia Energy), Danka Daubnerová (Tatra banka), Erika Vitalosova (PwC Slovakia), and Peter Škyrta (KPMG in Slovakia). We have discussed the role of steel in the green transition, renewable and low-carbon energy resources, green finance, the importance of sustainability reporting and more.

Thank you, President Čaputová, for your visionary leadership. We would also like to thank Norbert Kurilla and everyone involved in the Summer Climate Academy for the impeccable organization and cooperation. To the students - you are a true inspiration, embodying our hope for a brighter and more sustainable future. And of course, our friends at the U.S. Embassy in Bratislava and U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia Gautam Rana.
