Circular transformation for the resource efficient society

Affordable and Clean Energy
Climate Action
Sustainable Cities and Communities
Responsible Consumption and Production
Clean Water and Sanitation

In less than two hundred years, exploitation of the earth’s resources has increased dramatically, as have emissions of greenhouse gases, mainly from use of fossil fuels. This exploitation has led to that the humans consume more resources than the earth can regenerate and that the climate change is a fact. The greatest challenge for the future is to re-create a resource-efficient society. We must move from linear to a circular economy.

While society faces these challenges, a digital transformation is underway. New technology is driving a major change and changing conditions; physical goods become digital services, etc.

We see that this digital transformation as an enabler for driving the circular transformation that society needs to minimize with climate change and reduce the use of resources.
