Why Swedish businesses embrace sustainability
The Swedish export and investment strategy has incorporated the Global Goals in Agenda 2030 with the aim for economic growth. The Global Goals tackle three dimensions of sustainability: economic, social and environmental, which, if reached, will create a better world – both now and in the future. This includes ending poverty and fighting inequality and climate change.
The Swedish government has found that Swedish companies have a competitive advantage on the global market thanks to having incorporated sustainability in their business model. Swedish businesses have recognized this and more and more uses Agenda 2030 as a framework for their sustainability work. This showcases how sustainability can increase chances of profit when incorporated in a business model.
Located in the sustainability district at Expo 2020 the Swedish pavilion will showcase both the sustainability incorporated in Swedish business models as well as the impact the Swedish export and investment strategy has on reaching the Global Goals in Agenda 2030. Sustainability is profitable and Sweden has recognized that.
