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 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 and give them tools to succeed. A Sustainability Acceleration Project (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!
Sustainability is a team effort. Through ASAP, Ecolabelling Sweden contributes to a sustainable society together with ambitious partners. We have guided consumers in 30 years now and our experts have cooperated with different industries and organisations to make sure that their production is sustainable, Christian Quarles, Head of communication.
