The association’s members are united in their ambition to pursue ambitious climate work with a focus on helping society to rapidly reduce its emissions.

By sharing experiences, building capabilities, and cooperating with other consulting companies within Digitaliseringskonsulterna, climate transition challenges can be addressed, and new opportunities seized.
“Our vision is to contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions through digitalization,” Rickard Åström, CEO of Data Ductus. “The solutions that we develop and implement have the potential to help our clients do this through, for instance, lowering energy consumption. I have high expectations on the collaboration with the other member companies and the exchange of ideas that come with it.”
The association represents the industry on behalf of the government through fossil-free Sweden. As such, it is responsible for developing the roadmap for fossil-free competitiveness and global sustainability that was handed over to the Swedish government in March 2019. All members stand behind the goals of the roadmap and undertake to:

- Integrate climate action into their business strategy in order to help clients readjust and take appropriate steps.
