The Embassy of Sweden in Romania and the Sustainable Living Podcast present innovative sustainability practices of Swedish companies in Romania.
The new season of the Sustainable Living Podcast is being launched, through which you will meet guests from a variety of Swedish companies present in Romania, at the forefront of the ecological and sustainable transition, such as Autoliv, Axis Communications, Ikea, Ericsson, Tetra Pak, Volvo Trucks, but also from the Stockholm Environment Institute. Each episode presents the best practices of Swedish companies through dialogues about the innovative and circular business models they have implemented to reduce CO2 emissions and save energy.
Swedish industry and business leaders have understood that today's competitive advantage lies in the ability to provide resource-efficient and emission-free solutions and products. This new season of the Sustainable Living Podcast makes known the inspiring presence of Swedish companies in Romania and how they lead the sustainable transition in Europe and beyond.
Sweden, which holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union since January 2023, is considered a leader in sustainability for several reasons. One is its strong commitment to renewable energy, with the country generating over half of its electricity from hydro and wind power. In addition, Sweden has a long history of investing in energy efficiency and has implemented policies to promote sustainable transport, such as a high presence of electric vehicles and a well-developed public transport system. Sweden also places a strong emphasis on recycling and waste reduction and has set ambitious targets for reducing carbon emissions. In addition, Sweden's government and society place a strong emphasis on sustainable development, which has contributed to the country's reputation as a leader in sustainability. Swedish companies are often at the forefront of developing and implementing new sustainable technologies and practices, such as green buildings, renewable energy and sustainable transport.
"Swedish companies are at the forefront of the green and sustainable transition, in Sweden and globally. Swedish industry and business leaders have understood that competitive advantage today lies in the ability to provide resource-efficient and emission-free solutions and products. In Romania, we have an important presence of Swedish companies with circular business models whose products and solutions will reduce CO2 emissions and save energy. Sweden currently holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union. In this role, we want Europe to lead by example. The transition to a resource-efficient and fossil-fuel-free near future will require major investments in innovative industries that can translate the best ideas and innovations into workable solutions. Governments and the private sector must work together. Swedish companies, including those already present and working in Romania, are part of this crucial transition," says Therese Hydén, Ambassador of Sweden in Romania.
"Presenting the best practices of Swedish companies in Romania through the Sustainable Living Podcast platform will allow the exploration and in-depth discussion of the various sustainable practices implemented by these companies, giving listeners a comprehensive understanding of the initiatives and their long-term impact. In addition, each episode can serve as a source of inspiration and guidance for other organizations wishing to adopt sustainable practices. The Sustainable Living Podcast is a tool for raising awareness about the role of business in addressing environmental and social challenges and an educational resource for people interested in sustainability," says Nicoleta Talpeș, host of the Sustainable Living Podcast.
