Stockholm x New York
Intense learning, sharing and co-creation will take place on November 13, when the Sustainology Summit gathers some of Stockholm and New York’s brightest entrepreneurs, decision-makers and disruptive companies to address UN Sustainable Development Goal #17: Partnerships for the Goals. This year’s theme will be centered on the global FoodTech movement, shared goal setting and decision making, as participants from both cities will share insights on the trends and driving forces behind new, disruptive methods and products. “I believe both cities can benefit from a close partnership—given New York’s role as a major global city and Stockholm’s progress on sustainability and social responsibility. Together, Stockholm can help develop many new sustainable policies to be tested in New York,” says Michael M. Roberts, Chief Lending Officer and Global Head of Corporate Banking & Lending at Citi. Among the highlights of this year’s conference will be the presentation of the SACCNY-Deloitte Green Award, presented on stage to a Swedish company that demonstrates forward thinking and innovation with respect to sustainability in food. Nominees for 2018 include Karma, Micvac, Ecofarma and Jägaren & Kocken. “As an example of our strong responsibility and role in society, this award is presented to acknowledge Swedish companies that ventured to tackle the big problems and change the world,” notes Andreas Marcetic, Partner at Deloitte. Excited to bring together these brilliant minds, SACCNY welcomes you to join the movement!
