Sustainable Scandinavia: Global Inspiration for Responsible Business

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The dominant narrative about business is that it is fundamentally about competition where firms seek to achieve a "competitive advantage."  In this session we will explore a different approach to business as experienced in a Scandinavian context where business is considered a cooperative endeavor and where firms seek to achieve a "cooperative advantage."  We will discuss how this enables Scandinavian businesses to more effectively cross boundaries and engage with governments, NGOs, and industry peers to address pressing global sustainability challenges.
