Welcome to Use-ReUse Day 2019 on September 19 in Varberg


Sharpen your stance on sustainability, meet decision makers from all over Europe and pave the way for new business.

Sustainability is on top of everybody’s agenda. Most often it’s linked to the climate and environmental issues, but social and econimic sustainability are mentioned more and more. Your company is evaluated on all these parameters by the general public, partners, share holders and authorities. How you handle sustainability affects the bottom line, the brand, recruitment and progress.

Successful sustainability involves every part of a company. From an environmental point-of- view it requires hand-on decisions on chemicals, waste, transports and emissions, but
also discussions on travel and meeting policies. Social sustainability involves everything from equality and diversity to human rights and economic sustainability includes ethical investments, salary levels, how much taxes the company pay, etc.

Why participate

Marketing and communication

Customers and other stakeholders expect a company to be sustainable and transparent. It places demands on the marketing department to communicate in a way that increases competitiveness and strengthens the brand.

Product development

Products are now being examined in the smallest detail. Is all material sustainable? Is it possible to adapt products that have been manufactured for a long time to the new era and can you develop new, sustainable alternatives with the same characteristics as the old ones?


The demands are increasing that production must be sustainable and resource utilization minimal. A closed cycle of recycling and recycling is the ideal, but can it be achieved?


Customers demand that purchases – and suppliers – be sustainable. Perhaps the suppliers need to be trained in sustainability or is it time to choose other partners?

Personnel / HR

Sustainability is not just about climate and the environment, but also about diversity, equality, ethics and morality. The staff has new expectations and sets new requirements and the sustainability policy becomes an important tool for recruitment.


How do you ensure that investments are sustainable and what criteria should you use? Is there a process for assessing the investments and how should they be counted home? Old truths do not apply. The new time sets new demands.
