We applaud the decision, by SACCNY and partners, to focus this years summit on the tackling of global environmental problems associated with the food industry. SACCNY fills an important role when it comes to building relationships, as well as enable knowledge sharing between Swedish and American companies and organisations. In the daily stream of gloomy environmental news, the Sustainology summit sparked hope and inspiration for how we can achieve positive change together. We would like to thank SACC New York and Deloitte for a well organised summit, as well as the speakers and participants who contributed to making this a great day.

Special thanks to the moderator Nina Ekelund from the Haga Initiative and the organisers at SACC New York Anna Throne-Holst, Jennie Purushothaman, Julia Grönstedt and Yasmina Backström.
