“My expectations are that this course will provide me with valuable and practical tools to implement sustainable business models into my daily operations and thereby strengthening my competitive advantage. The speakers have demonstrated an impressive ability to communicate academicand complex theories and experiences in a very practical and comprehensible manner,” says Dag Snemyr, CEO of In-Control.

“This is a highly targeted effort to speed up the development of sustainable business models in the oil and gas industry. In addition to the typical financial bottom line, we need to be aware of – and focus on – our environmental bottom line,” says Marie Borgen, Infrastructure and HR Manager at Nymo.

The project is funded by Innovation Norway.
