Implementation of sustainability strategies:
New ways of working to accelerate transitions in Swedish process industry
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a strategic priority for both governments and industrial companies. Since the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, reducing dependence on fossil fuels has become even more critical and the EU emphasizes the need to accelerate the pace of innovation and the transition to cleaner energy forms.
In Sweden, process industries are the largest industrial emitters, and they are characterized by large investments, slow feedback loops and long time-horizons. Thus, innovation and change processes are time-consuming - a critical concern given the need for rapid transitions requiring new strategies.
This project examines how Swedish process industry can work to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and counteract climate change by scrutinizing processes and practices of sustainable strategy implementation.
Together with selected actors in Swedish process industry, the project creates knowledge about the development and implementation of sustainability strategies.
