The Nordic Chambers’ Business Forum brings together senior business people to celebrate Anglo-Nordic business, share expertise and discuss timely topics.  This year’s forum is hosted at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

In the face of climate change and the wider UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability is on the radar of every industry. Looking ahead, it is important to understand the strategic opportunities that sustainability carries for companies across technology, services, finance etc. – and for investors in both advanced and emerging economies.
