We are convinced that it is easier to speed up the transition to sustainable development when climate and environmental issues are discussed extensively. When the big questions are ignored by the media, the policies become more short-sighted and myopic.
Therefore, we want to be active in the public debate, and encourage all employees to raise their voice, both as part of 2050 and in other sectors. We are convinced that it will benefit our partners, because if we ourselves are part of the debate, we can be more helpful as advisors.
In the press room you will find what we have written ourselves and what is published about us, as 2050.
Get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to one of our coworkers. Their contact information is listed under about 2050.
