How does your research contribute to a better world?

"Agenda 2030 was established to get firms and leaders involved in creating a sustainable future. By collecting unique data on green innovation in Swedish firms and public sector, my research contributes to foster this development. We have been able to show the significance that top management and the board of directors play in green transition and its development. To step forward and lead by setting up clear green innovation goals and visions is of great importance – we are not there yet. Equally is a leadership called for that can create a culture of hope among its employees, and use its intellectual capital to make a positive contribution to the environmental development."
