Snapshot: A Steady Vision, Strong Commitment and Global Sustainability Ambitions

Kristina Lekås,

During Snapshot Talks: Unite for Good (a co-hosted event between Cognizant and Stockholm School of Economics), Stena Recycling, Vattenfall and Axfoundation shared their inside stories on how to realize sustainability effects at scale. 

How can a traditional company secure commitment within its organization and also support cross-company collaboration? Why is it important to include a variety of disciplines in the teams addressing sustainability? What are the benefits of disturbing the existing value chains and how do you do it?

Watch the 1 h video to get the full story from the following speakers: 

  • Malin Baltzar, Head of Sustainable Business, Stena Recycling
  • Mikael Nordlander, Head of R&D portfolio Industry Decarbonisation, Vattenfall
  • Maria Smith, General Secretary, Axfoundation

One key insight is also to add the sustainability aspect early on, preferably built into the very Design Thinking process. To learn more, check out what Cognizant’s Sven Jabegro has to say about it in Where Design Thinking Went Wrong – and How to Fix It.
