NAVIGATING TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Today’s sustainability-related challenges and opportunities require companies to challenge their ways of working and set new goals. Sustainability is no longer an isolated issue – it is the very foundation of a successful and responsible business. This calls for leaders and boards with the knowledge, willingness, and determination to lead their organizations towards a sustainable future.
In the Novare Sustainability Program, we aim to equip participants with the latest knowledge and best practices in various aspects of sustainability. We invite distinguished guest speakers from the business world and experts who share facts, valuable knowledge, and practical experiences of driving sustainable transformation in their organizations and boards.
EXPERIENCE THE GREEN TRANSITION IN NORTHERN SWEDEN
A significant part of the program takes place in northern Sweden – known as “Sweden’s Silicon Valley” – where we’ll have the opportunity to experience and learn from the green transition taking place in the region. The transition in northern Sweden is one of the driving forces behind Europe’s sustainable transformation. It’s a unique position from which all leaders can draw lessons and actively contribute to.
SUSTAINABILITY – EVERY LEADER’S RESPONSIBILITY
The Novare Sustainability Program is tailored for senior leaders, specialists, and board members aiming to deepen their knowledge and insights in the field of sustainability. We believe that sustainability issues can no longer be confined to the responsibility of just the sustainability director; instead, it must engage all leaders and employees in an organization or board. Through this program, you will gain updated knowledge to future-proof your organization. Additionally, you’ll build a valuable network with other experienced leaders who share the ambition to actively contribute to the sustainable transition.
The Novare Sustainability Program consists of two modules (one full day each) in Stockholm and a trip to northern Sweden where we will witness the sustainable transformation. We are happy to arrange this unique trip for the third consecutive year, providing a unique insight into the ongoing transformation.
The program runs from February to April 2024 and is conducted in English. The modules before and after the trip will be held at Novare’s premises at Blasieholmen in central Stockholm.

“As a leader today, I believe the most important thing is to embed a company culture where all employees can see and feel that sustainability goes hand in hand with building a long-term and financially prosperous company. The businesses that achieve the greatest success over time are those where Sustainability Strategy is Business Strategy.
I am grateful for the opportunity to experience the Novare North Innovation Tour. It was incredibly inspiring to hear about the enormous efforts being made by the business community and society in Northern Sweden. For me, it is particularly impactful that this tremendous creativity and entrepreneurial spirit in the Green Transition exists on such a large scale right here in our own backyard in northern Sweden.”
