Will technology save us or is innovation the answer?


When listening to the concrete industry, it is easy to think that we need concrete. Who would even question that? But when about seven percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions come from cement production, it might be time to think differently. Or should we just wait for CCS to take care of the problem for us?

There is a gap between vision and work

hållbara leverantörer

There is a clear gap between the high sustainability targets of large companies and the ability of suppliers to contribute. Therefore, we have two clear appeals to our major Swedish companies today:
1. Feel free to set sustainability requirements on suppliers, but only if you intend to reward the companies that live up to the requirements.
2. Bring the suppliers on the journey! Tell them what’s going on, what the requirements will be and what it takes for them to live up to them.

Biological diversity in the steering room


Who owns the night? For one of the goats, the answer is easy to answer. It is Greven who owns the garden between dusk and dawn. It has become clear now that autumn is arriving, and the dark part of the day gets longer by the day. Greven is a badger. There have been stories about him in the neighborhood since we moved in, but we’ve never seen him. Until this summer. The thing is that he has invited parts of his family as well and things are getting messy.

Is sustainability expensive?

Tipping point

This week’s post is about money, simply because we feel that there has been a shift in the approach to sustainability. In the past, most people chose to work with sustainability because it was a way of saving money: energy efficiency and less waste, for instance. Do you remember? Today, however, very few people we have talked to recently see savings as a driving force for their sustainability work.
