"How can we accelerate sustainable business even faster? Thank you British & Commonwealth Chamber of Commerce in Finland and Robert John for the opportunity to share thoughts on how partnerships can not only gain trust, but also speed up new innovations and cleaner solutions. I was also happy to see how competitive advantage and sustainability is becoming more and more connected – which was also emphasised by Sonja Lahtinen in her eye-opening speech."

"I was invited to the British & Commonwealth Chamber of Commerce in Finland Members' Breakfast on Sustainability, and heard some insightful talks on the circular economy, sustainability and collaborations; something that aligns with the core of what we are doing at Iron Lakes. It was great to also meet with the board members, partners and other members of the Chambers, and compare notes on vision and strategic implementation."
