Good examples of sustainable development
As inspiration and to share our knowledge, we publish interviews with companies, associations, organizations and more, as well as individuals committed to sustainable development. For us, sustainable development is something that we can all contribute to, no matter what our business or interests. 

What does sustainable development mean?
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” This definition of sustainable development was introduced in the 1980s by Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Prime Minister of Norway, who was at this time leading the UN’s World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED).

More good examples to come
We’ve visited several more places than those shown above. Videos, photos and notes from these occasions are waiting to come to life here on this page. For example: Fallängetorp för fä och folk B&B, which has adapted its premises and activities to make them more accessible; Ingmari, who offers guided tours in Hälleskogsbrännan; and Tärnsjö Garveri, which is one of few tanneries in the world that uses vegetable products for tanning.

Water management is important not only for specific, local watercourses, but for the entire water chain all the way to the Baltic Sea. With this in mind, we’ve also met with Julmyra Horse Center, where they’ve lain drainage in their horse paddocks, and Monika and others working with filtration around the Gussjön lake and similar initiatives. We’ve also looked at experiments with water purification with floating islands and barley straw bales in the Viggsjön lake outside Västerfärnebo and in Hönsan in central Hedemora.

We welcome tips on others we can interview about their sustainability work!
