Snapshot: Unite for Good with SSE, Vattenfall, Axfoundation & Skanska

How can businesses, cities and people unite for a more sustainable planet? Find out by signing up for Snapshot Talks: Unite for Good, a solution-packed afternoon 4 Dec at Stockholm School of Economics where business and academia explore sustainability through the lens of technology. 

Welcome to the grand finale of our Tech for Good series (check out the previous seminars AI for Good, Efficiency for Good and Innovation for Good). The event is a collaboration between Cognizant and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE/Handelshögskolan), during which sustainability will be explored through the lens of technologies like cloud, AI, analytics, IoT, 5G and digital engineering, with an emphasis on collaborations and partnerships.

We’re proud to present a very strong lineup of participating companies and speakers, structured around three main themes: 

  1. Science Based Business: Unite for Good. How far can an offensive approach, a steady vision and an aim for global reach take you? What about getting commitment from senior management? Listen as speakers from Vattenfall, Axfoundation and Stena Recycling share their stories behind strategic collaborations with other companies, researchers and society to realize sustainability effects at scale. 
  2. Unite for Innovation: Unite, Co-Create, Act! Meet two startups that are based on strategic, market-driven innovation with a global impact: Minesto and Volvo spin-off Powercell. They will describe how young companies can connect to international, major players to speed up the market entrance, and to thus effect climate and the environment. This session will also include a presentation of Cognizant’s case cracking with SJ. 
  3. Future Cities & Regions: Together for Sustainability. Cities and regions are now rapidly becoming one of the most important real-time arenas for sustainable development. Cities represent an increasingly dominant part of the world’s population, are characterized by high consumption and face major infrastructural challenges, and as such, cities also constitute a playing field for sustainability through partnerships, digitalization and new business models. Listen as Skanska and White Architects talk about complex systems that stitch together authorities, businesses, organizations and citizens.      

The seminars will end with a closing panel, where participants from the Institute for Future Studies, Stockholm School of Economics, Södertörn University Stockholm and Vattenfall will discuss what it takes to make global impact in the sustainability context.
