how it all began

How can we empower students to become sustainability leaders of tomorrow? In other words, help them to grow into those individuals that regardless of context or formal position, can and want to drive the sustainability agenda forward. Sustainergies and The Nordic Swan Ecolabel saw the same urgent need — and potential — to join forces for a larger collaboration around sustainability and competence. So, we set out on a mission to inspire students and give them tools to succeed. A Sustainability Acceleration Project (ASAP) was born!

They have also successfully run the sustainability case competition Sustainergies Cup for 7 years, so ASAP is a next logical step towards the vision of making the Global Goals everybody’s go-to career goal!

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel
our founder
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel

Since 1989, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel has supported and guided consumers and producers in becoming more environmentally conscious. The goal is to reduce the overall environmental impact of production and consumption as much as possible. As Ragnar Unge, Chairman of Nordic Ecolabelling Board of Directors say, ”We see that the work of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel aligns with many of the global sustainability goals. We want to help companies, buyers, and consumers to contribute to meeting the goals by producing and prioritising products carrying the Nordic Swan”. ASAP is a part of the transformation to a next generation ecolabel, to educate and inspire tomorrow's sustainability leaders!
