Boards Impact Forum
As Boards, CEOs and business leaders navigate a world of complex global challenges, sustainability is no longer optional but a business imperative. Two sustainability leaders with decades of experience – Henrik Henriksson, CEO of Scania, upcoming CEO H2 Green Steel, NED Electrolux and Elaine Weidman Grunewald, NED Sweco, European Sustainable Growth Acquisition Corp, founder, investor and former Chief Sustainability Officer Ericsson – offer a simple but powerful three-step model for leading an organization on a sustainability transformation journey that aims at big, audacious, world-changing goals. This is the encouragement and inspiration business leaders need to move past incremental improvement at a time when exponential, world-changing action is more urgent than ever.
Honest about the dilemmas but bullish on the opportunities, they advise leaders on how to accelerate sustainability in their organizations told through a Swedish lens, where the country’s values and culture permeate the boardroom and the C-suite, bringing a unique clarity and conviction to leading with integrity.
In practical insights gleaned from the authors’ own experience, they will share insights about the three phases of sustainability leadership: from establishing a solid foundation rooted in purpose, culture, values, principles and consistent, credible leadership, to integrating sustainability into the core business, and then to executing a vision that not only shifts the direction of the company but can change an entire industry, and even the world.
The presenters will also share examples from their new book “Sustainability Leadership, A Swedish Approach to Transforming your Company, your Industry and The World” , including insights from authors as well as more than 25 interviews with other leading CEOs of Swedish companies as well as successful start-ups, investors, economists, and other experts to illuminate the path to sustainability leadership from different perspectives.
A presentation based on own experiences will be held by:
• Henrik Henriksson, CEO of Scania, upcoming CEO H2 Green Steel, NED Electrolux
• Elaine Weidman Grunewald, NED Sweco, European Sustainable Growth Acquisition Corp, founder, investor and former Chief Sustainability Officer Ericsson
Followed by a moderated Q&Q discussion by Liselotte Engstam, IDP-C, Boards Impact Forum Chair.
