Efforts to promote sustainable business can strengthen companies in significant respects by helping them identify and manage risks and thus create competitive advantages. Companies also need to provide more and better information to an increasing extent to the rest of the world, for example concerning climate risks and climate work, in order to inspire confidence and be attractive to financiers. Work has been going on for a long time to strengthen state-owned companies’ sustainable business efforts. According to the Riksdag, the companies should set a good example of sustainable business and the character of their operations should be open and exemplary The State is a major company owner in terms of both company value and turnover, as well as the number of employees.
