Nordic Chambers Business Forum 2019: Investing in Sustainability

Join the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK in a joint collaboration with the Nordic Chambers at the Annual Nordic Chambers Business Forum 2019. This year marks the sixth forum with a focus on "Investing in Sustainability".

The Nordic countries are recognised by the international community as today's leading actors in sustainable development. The non-profit forum provides the audience with valuable knowledge and experience directly from leading actors in the field, including business executives. The knowledge and expertise shared are useful when wanting to have a greater understanding of the megatrends in sustainable development and in the process of achieving the sustainable development goals.

During the forum, we will ask what the strategic opportunities in sustainability for companies across several sectors are, including, technology, services, finance and many more. Investors will also gain an insight into what the strategic opportunities are in both advanced and emerging economies.
