Organised by the Swedish Local Network, the panel discussion is part of the hybrid Nordic Global Compact Meeting, taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden, on October 26-27. Titled, “Just Transition and the Role of Business”, the conference focuses on ensuring a just transition in human rights and climate. To ensure a just transition, where both social, environmental and economic requirements are met, cooperation between different actors is crucial. No company can solve the many crises we are currently facing on its own. Therefore, the two-day conference will have a special focus on enabling collaboration, share experiences and brainstorm solutions around common challenges.
