To succeed as a company with the green transition demands cooperation. We invited 70 consultants from the international network FIPRA International to spend two days focusing on the political and regulatory challenges for the green transition.

With representatives from all over the world – from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland but also from Mexico, Brazil, and South Africa – is it clear that the challenges in the green transition are different and that the conditions vary. Despite that, the message during the international FIPRA-conference which Hallvarsson and Halvarsson hosted, was unequivocally: “The green transition is not going anywhere.”

Already now, countries and industries are working ambitiously to address the green transition in different ways, but in trouble times there are numerous other prioritized questions that demand attention. Therefore, it is also difficult for the business community as well as the politics to stay the course in a transformation that demands long term thinking.

Christoffer Fjellner, an opposition city council member in Sweden and former EU-parliamentarian, was one of the speakers at the FIPRA-conference who pointed out that cooperation is a condition to succeed with the transition.

“Ambitious advocacy work leads to better political decisions. If those who are actually affected by the decisions are not allowed to, want to, or can participate the outcome of the decisions will in most cases be worse”, says Christoffer Fjellner.

To be able to successfully navigate in the political arena at home, in the EU and internationally is a condition to drive change in an increasingly globalized world. Purposeful work of Public Affairs creates conditions for a long-term approach while preparing companies to address suddenly emerging issues and changes.
