Today, at a seminar hosted by 2050 Consulting and CSR Västsverige, politicians, decision makers and business leaders met on board Götheborg of Sweden to discuss the role of West Sweden businesses in driving regional and international sustainability efforts to meet climate change.
Heading out once again
Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, and will create great attention wherever she goes. We are now heading out again! Together with a selected number of partner companies, and focus on business and sustainability, we will sail to Asia in 2022 and 2023. The trip to Stockholm in August 2021 was the first stop on that adventure!
We are now back in Gothenburg until May 2022.
It's been more than fifteen years since Götheborg of Sweden sailed to Asia. In May 2022, we are heading out again! In the same vein as in our history, the mission is to promote Swedish-Asian trade and create new business opportunities.
For our next expedition, we are also putting innovations for a better world on display. We will create a commitment to the greatest challenge of our times – the adaptation to a sustainable future.
Sustainability is at the core of our expedition 2022/2023. Therefore, we have started a process of identifying what we can improve and what we can do to make sure we take responsible decisions and actions for a sustainable future.
The exciting task for this week included locating, taking down, debarking and preparing timber that will become six new yards on the ship! Heading out on our big expedition to Asia next year, we need to bring spare yards with us, and this week has been very busy at the sawmill outside of Laholm.
Welcome on board
Partnering with us means you will be associated with the spectacular ship, trade for sustainability, and our common mission to promote Swedish-Asian trade.
Founded on sustainability
International trade can have positive effects on all three dimensions of sustainability; economic, social, and environmental. With our 2022/2023 expedition, we are putting innovations for a better world on display. We will help spread commitment to the greatest challenge of our times – the adaptation to a sustainable future.
The stopover experience
The quay quickly transforms into a bustling location with 10,000 people circulating through the area. On board Götheborg, there will be mingles, dinners, family days, press events and much more.
