Misum after work on sustainable ownership
2016-09-22 at 16:30
A narrow focus on either the private company or public sector has made the Swedish domestic ownership structure unsustainable in the long run. That’s the bottom line in the report A sustainable ownership structure by the SSE-researcher Sophie Nachemson-Ekwall. The publication goes through how ownership in Sweden is organized, sector by sector: the stock market, foreign ownership, the venture capital industry, the civil society, cooperatives, the public sector, as well as family businesses, and contains over 50 policy recommendations that can form a base for a broad discussion around how Sweden can transform itself to a pluralistic growth society.
Welcome to a seminar about how to create a more long-term perspective in the business sector as well as in politics and about how alternative forms of ownership such as cooperatives and non-profit businesses can help us reach the sustainable development goals.
Sophie Nachemson-Ekwall, PhD and part of the Mistra Financial Systems program at Misum, will present her study “A Sustainable Ownership structure” as input to a subsequent panel discussion.
Former Minister for Financial Markets, Peter Norman, will comment on the study together with Lena Hök, Head of Sustainability at savings mutual Skandia. Lena Hök is also part of a Harvard report on Shared Value, which she will present briefly. Part of our after work panel will also include Filip Wijkström, Associate Professor at SSE and an expert on Civil Society. Misum’s Executive Director, Lin Lerpold, will moderate the panel.
