Stockholm University was one of this year´s participants and Johan Rockström, executive director of Stockholm Resilience Centre, was specially invited to hold a lecture at the opening session.
- Our societies face enormous future challenges related to climate and ecosystem change. Cleantech can contribute to lowering our impact on the environment and is an important component in a sustainable society, Johan Rockström said.
In the Stockholm University exhibition visitors learned more about the research on the climate and environment conducted at Stockholm University and at Stockholm Resilience Centre in particular.
Corporate Ecosystem Services Review
In cooperation with Albaeco the centre introduced visitors to the Corporate Ecosystem Services Review, developed by World Resources Institute, and based on the findings from the UN Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. It is a structured methodology for corporate managers to proactively develop strategies for managing business risks and opportunities arising from their companies´ dependence and impact on ecosystems.
- It was encouraging to see the genuine interest for the methodology from the corporate representatives visiting Copenmind. We hope several of them will use it in their strategic planning, which will help them adapt to the effects of the global changes we are facing, says Louise Hård af Segerstad at Albaeco.
