Hanaholmen Future Forum

Hanaholmen Future Forum is looking to discuss how business can transform and deliver the sustainable future.

Sustainability as an Opportunity

11.00-15.00 (Sweden)
12.00-16.00 (Finland)

We need action: new business models, new forms of investments. a new leadership. Climate change, global social inequality, biodiversity loss and increased investor and consumer pressure are the driving forces of change – now your business has an opportunity to lead the way.

The 2021 Hanaholmen Future Forum will challenge speakers from Sweden and Finland to share their experiences of business, investments and leadership, and ask them how they intend to deliver a more sustainable business model.

This will be one of the most inspirational events in 2021 – giving you and your peers practical ideas and useful insight into different leadership strategies.

Topic 01 – Next Generation of Business

To keep industries viable for the future, they must go through disruptive transformations. Apparel, Agriculture, Forestry, Finance, Mobility and Energy are just some of the industries that need to undergo systemic change.

Topic 02 – New Forms of Investment

The financial services sector will play a crucial role in the climate change action. From financing solutions and mitigating challenges to mobilizing the capital flows needed to fund the activities. The question is, however, how governments and the private sector can come together to create an environment that prioritizes sustainability, incentivizes companies to invest in more sustainable solutions, and encourages organisations to act in new and innovative ways?

Topic 03 – New Opportunities to Take a Leadership Role

Leaders who recognize that the experience of change itself, and the dissonance it creates, fuels new thinking, discoveries, and innovations that can revitalize the health of organizations, communities and the earth, will ultimately be at the forefront of the future business world.
