keynote speakers

THE COMPLEXITY OF
SUSTAINABLE DELIVERIES

A fossil – free vehicle fleet does not automatically mean sustainable deliveries. To reach the UN’s climate goals, all aspects of sustainability need to be in focus – environmental , social, and economical. PostNord’s sustainability manager Naznoush Habashian highlights the complex sustainability challenges that all of us face due to changing lifestyles, digitalisation, technological development, and the current, complicated security policy situation.
This keynote will be in Swedish.

Naznoush Habashian is Head of Sustainability at PostNord Sweden and has been named one of Sweden’s most powerful sustainability leaders for two years in a row. She has solid experience in sustainability work, most recently as Head of Sustainability, Swedish Armed Forces HQ.

INNOVATIONS FOR FUTURE SUSTAINABLE HOUSING

HSB Living Lab tests new technical and architectural innovations for a period of 10 years. The tests provide knowledge on how to build the homes of the future. Emma Sarin, project manager at HSB Living Lab, delivers insights on what we can expect in the next decade when it comes to resources and energy savings. How shall we cook our food, wash, build and adapt our homes to create sustainability – today and tomorrow?
This keynote will be in Swedish.
 
Emma Sarin is project manager at HSB Living Lab, a world unique laboratory where sustainable living of the future is researched and developed. 40 people have their permanent homes here, while research is carried out 24/7. In broad cooperation, sustainable materials, techniques, digitalisation and how our behaviours can become more sustainable are explored. Emma has been with HSB since 2007 and is also Head of Development and Sustainability at HSB ProjektPartner.

breakout sessions

1. HOW TO CREATE A SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN WITH IOT

Full supply chain transparency, the kind that offers visibility from your many tiers of suppliers through the last mile to consumers, is the holy grail for supply chain practitioners. That’s because visibility provides unlimited opportunities to improve sustainability and CSR within your operations. In this session, you will gain insights on how visibility can drive optimisation and sustainability in your supply chain. 
 
Erik Lund is the Head of Visilion, an asset-tracking and supply chain visibility solution provided by Sony Network Communications Europe. He has a background in transport and logistics combined with an extensive experience in technology, particularly IoT and digital security. Erik has worked with corporate innovation and venture building in maritime and logistics and advises logistics start-ups.

2. HOW TO ACHIEVE PROFITABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY IN RETAIL

The drivers in retail and e-commerce to become more profitable and more sustainable are obvious. By focusing on areas with big impact, such as Returns Management, the effect in both dimensions can be substantial. In this session, you gain insights on how Stadium, the retail chain selling sports equipment, managed to halve their costs in Returns Management by using the Easycom platform, which improves the customer experience and provides 360-degree insights in customer and product areas. 

Peter Hietala is the current CEO and founder of Easycom, a software platform that helps e-commerce vendors and logistic providers to reduce the number of returns and make Returns Management more efficient. He previously worked at H&M as Global E-commerce Distribution Manager.

Caroline Thorén is COO at Nexer’s digital agency Maverick and Retail Industry Partner. She has long experience within retail and worked as COO at Nelly and Head of H&M’s IT division Sales Online and Marketing when they expanded the online sales globally for all brands within the H&M family.

3. HOW TO WORK PROACTIVELY AND STRATEGICALLY WITH SUSTAINABILITY DATA

How can you avoid green-washing with data-driven sustainability work and what other possibilities are created with data transparency? How can sustainability work deliver business value?

Join an interactive and exploring session on how taking an MDM approach to collect, manage, analyse and share sustainability data is a proactive and sustainable strategy to avoid green-washing, comply and be prepared for new regulations, manage your environmental footprint as well as identify new business opportunities.
 
This session is facilitated by Anna Enarsson, Global Marketing Manager at Nexer Data Management. Anna has +20 years of experience in Business Development, Digitalisation, Agile Development Projects and Communication.
