Jannike Ludvigsson

Swedavia AB

Aviation in Sweden creates a lot of emotions. But our decisions must be based on logic and facts. The flights of the future are fossil-free. To get there, the entire toolbox needs to be used. Even though Jannike didn't become the carpenter she wanted when she was a kid, she and Swedavia have shown that it's possible to combine great business benefits with proactive climate work.

Jannike has many years of experience in strategic sustainability work and how we can create lasting change with the help of innovation and commitment from everyone involved. Jannike is stubborn, dares to challenge and knows that success is based on collaborations. Her master's studies in political science and sustainable development have contributed to an interdisciplinary approach. At the end of 2020, Swedavia reached the goal of zero fossil carbon emissions from the airport operations the company has under its own management. What Swedavia has done, what challenges Swedavia overcame and how these have been handled, Jannike will share. Jannike will also disclose what Swedavia will do next - because the decarbonization of aviation is in full force in Sweden.
