Sustainability Policy 2021
Ekonomernas Dagar 2021 40th anniversary
We will strive for a fair that is as environmentally and socially sustainable as possible according to our Project Group’s best capability. For the first time in the history of Ekonomernas Dagar, there is going to be an official Guideline in order to ignite widespread cooperation regarding sustainability matters, which are of utmost importance in today’s interconnected world.
Ekonomernas Dagar has chosen four of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations to be of specific focus in this year’s fair. Every role and individual within the project group will aim to these goals and take them into consideration in their work.
GOAL 8: Decent Work And Economic Growth
Decent work and economic growth are of specific importance to Ekonomernas Dagar, since our primary objective is to connect students and companies and provide a platform especially for younger people to reach rewarding employment. We also want to find ways to encourage sustainable economic development both at home in Sweden and abroad.
GOALS 11 and 12: Sustainable cities and communities & Responsible consumption and production
In Sweden, public transportation is among the most functional worldwide. However, much work is yet to be done in improving the quality of it in terms of emissions and environmentally-friendly options. Furthermore, as a contrast to the current culture of disposability, we will aspire to build our fair by taking advantage of as much reusable material as possible. Therefore, we will focus on the sustainable transportation, recycling and products offered at the fair. In addition, we will encourage all participants to travel in an environmentally-friendly manner as well or, respectively, climate compensate their carbon footprint in terms of their participation in the fair.
