Meet the companies that spearhead the new industrial revolution

Digitalisation and the 4th industrial revolution create extensive opportunities for sustainable growth and financial returns. Interest in green investments is exploding. The future belongs to ESG (environment, social, governance), efficient resource management, and positive climate actions. Swedish cleantech business is at the forefront but future success is depending on the collaboration between business, politics and science. At the same time, the financial sector is looking at how they can contribute to changed behaviors via new investment strategies.

Are you part of the solution? What opportunities lie ahead for the industry? And what exactly are the financial sector up to?
