Industrial Ecology: Engineering for sustainable developmentSKF is sparking conversation and spreading ideas with a series of knowledge-sharing symposium called Let’s Talk. Industry experts are discussing industry trends such as Digitalisation, Industry Ecology and Smart Robotics in front of a live audience at leading universities.

A recent “Let’s Talk” event focused on Industrial Ecology, a systematic approach to sustainable development and the circular economy. Speakers included John Holmberg, Professor and Vice President of Sustainable Development, Chalmers University of Technology; Christoph Schw√§rzler, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy, Bombardier Transportation; Lindsay Berg, Industrial Ecology Masters Student, Chalmers University of Technology and Filip Rosengren, Railway Segment Manager, SKF.

Filip Rosengren, SKF says: “When we look at the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals, they are all important and we need to contribute to all of them, but I see three major areas which I would like to highlight. First, within industrialisation and innovation, offering our customers products that can reduce energy consumption like our BeyondZero portfolio. Second, within our own energy consumption and how we reduce overall CO2 emissions in our operations and finally, with global partnerships, to join forces and challenge old business models.”

The recorded symposiums are available on SKF’s YouTube channel. Further information can also be found on our website or by following the hashtag #LetsTalkIndustrialEcology across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
