Sustainabilty, collaboration & competence
How can we empower young people to become sustainability leaders of tomorrow? In other words, those individuals that regardless of context or formal position, can and want to drive the sustainability agenda forward? Sustainergies and Ecolabelling Sweden 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 to accelerate sustainable development and give them tools to succeed. ASAP was born!
Sustainergies is a career platform for students wanting to drive change for sustainable development in their future professional roles. Founded as a non-profit organization by students for students in 2009, Sustainergies has since matched thousands of students with opportunities in different sectors - jobs, internships and projects. 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 is no longer a student. With almost 30 years of experience in guiding consumers to choose the environmentally best products and services and companies to produce them, it has made the Nordic region a role model in the global ecolabelling arena. Ecolabelling Sweden is a state-owned company responsible for both the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel in Sweden. The mission is to save the world a little bit each day! ASAP is a part of the transformation to a next generation ecolabel, to educate and inspire tomorrow's sustainability leaders.
