My Story

Sustainability has always been a prevalent aspect of my life. I grew up in Sweden, a country quite unforgiving what regards the climate, and consequently the concept of sustainability has throughout several generations become an integral part of the society, and deeply indoctrinated in the people, including myself.


The concept of sustainability, durability, reliability, integrity and longevity are things that for me belongs together, and where I come from those values have been essential to overcome, adapt and thrive collectively during hardships, such as long and harsh Scandinavian winters.


I believe that as a society we are now facing potential hardships on a much bigger scale, resulting from climate change. However, it is with the same mindset that I intend to tackle that, and make my contributions. It is based on my ambition to steer the sustainable transition of our complex economic and financial system that I decided to join forces with likeminded people and to found SSI.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
