a team effort
And so is ASAP! To fully understand sustainability in practice and act on Agenda 2030 it is important to see the whole picture. Learning how different sectors and industries operate and getting to know challenges and opportunities that lie ahead is a great start. Proactive companies and competent practitioners are already pushing things forward!
We believe that future sustainability leaders should get a chance to collaborate with professionals with experience, know-how and resources to drive real change. So, for each year of our sustainability leadership training we team up with partners from industries and sectors with huge potential to contribute to a more sustainable world.
Our 2019 partners
2019 we team up with partners from four major industries: recycling, forest, green enterprise and innovation. Together with Stena Recycling, SCA, LRF and Accenture we continue to create ASAP, the biggest sustainability leadership training for students. Last year was a great success and all participants described it as a rewarding experience that they would recommend to other students. This year we will make it even better!
"By joining ASAP we want to increase awareness about the potential in the recycling business and its effect on the circular economy. We look forward to take part of the students’ ideas on how to achieve a more sustainable society."
- Malin Baltzar, Head of Sustainable Affairs
“As Europe’s largest private forest owner we value a dialogue with younger generations about the role of the forest as part of the bioeconomy and for the climate to be relevant now and in the future.”
- Katarina Kolar, Head of sustainability, SCA
“Climate change is one of the most important issues of our generation. The green sector will be part of the solution to mitigate carbon emissions, use the full potential of agriculture and forestry as carbon storage and ensure you can create a life of your own anywhere in Sweden.”
- Emilia Astrenius Widerström, chairman LRF Youth organization
"At Accenture Sweden, sustainability is fundamental to the way we operate. As social innovators, we are using our understanding of innovation and new technologies and its impact on people to develop inclusive, responsible and sustainable solutions to complex business and societal challenges"
