He is the main spokesperson for climate – internally and externally – for the total climate agenda at IKEA.
Responsibility includes defining and advising on strategic commitment and goals, keeping the overall climate footprint together, strategic content development and together with respective parts of the business develop the organisational capabilities to reach set strategic climate commitments and targets.
