Welcome to SIBC Connects; 'Next Generation Sustainable Industry'.

Ambition for the Global Goals has never been higher. Conference of the Parties (COP 26) in Glasgow has raised the bar of expectation, with increased commitments to accelerate our actions. Net Zero, Green Transition, Circular Economy are all key words in this discussion. The role of industry in this dialogue cannot be underestimated.

COP 26 looked at bringing a business case to sustainability, in concrete terms and we have already seen this lifted within the EU, with its discussion on taxonomy and business incentives. Many business stakeholders have already seen, and are operationalising the value of mainstreaming sustainability.

Join us to hear inside stories from experts in this arena and listen to Sara Larsson, General Manager of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Industry India; Linda Johansson, Senior Sustainability Advisor, Sweden-India Business Council and Linda Andrén, Vice President, Gunnebo.

We will be discussing the ways in which steps can be taken by industry to meet this global challenge. The session will be moderated by our very own Senior Vice President and Head of Sustainability, Arati Davis who shares: "I am really happy to have these industry experts with me for this 'SIBC Connects'. Sustainability and our global climate targets are only possible if they are accessible. Join me to discuss what this looks like at the level of operations AND results!".

One more sharing our commitment towards a greener tomorrow is Tom Johnstone, Sweden-India Business Council's Senior Executive Advisor, Member of India Sweden Business Leaders' Roundtable (ISBLRT) and Chairman Combient, Wärtsilä and Husqvarna . He adds: "Scope 3 emissions includes indirect emissions that occur in a company's value chain. For some companies, over 80% of their emissions lie in Scope 3. Committing to net zero is not enough to address climate change. You have to address your supply chain and how your products are used".
