Sustainable Business Gold - White.png

Innovation. Equality. Collaboration. Impact

 

We’re inspired by the change we wish to see in the world — one where global commerce, technological progress, and sustainability coexist. 

The Nordic countries have led the way in terms of democracy, equality, CSR, governance, people happiness and more, but to truly change and make an impact in regards to sustainability,  it is time for commerce and businesses to take the lead.

It is noteworthy that, in the face of a global pandemic that threatens the lives of millions, governments and businesses all over the world mobilised solutions and technologies at unprecedented speed.

We truly think global commerce is not the enemy to a sustainable future, instead it can be the solution. But to reinvent and empower industry to address complex environmental risks, it needs to be business driven and investments need to come with a return.

The sentiment for businesses to re-think is supported by major trend shifts in consumer behaviour, technological availability, fundraising requirements, investor transparency and climate-resilient targets - all while making a profit in return.

 

Business should today leverage technology and data in ways that improve productivity and quality while making processes more efficient. Sustainability makes good business sense, and we're all on the same team at the end of the day.

Join the agenda and unique platform bringing together the best of the Nordics and its collaboration opportunities. Know how to measure, manage, mitigate and scale Sustainable initiatives. 

 

People are the solution to the problem. What we do now and in the next few years will determine the fate of the next few thousand.

Sustainability and profitability goes hand in hand
