The Future Plan for Sustainable Production
The work within the Future Plan for Sustainable Production aims to create a consensus on priority areas in sustainable production and to strengthen regional and national initiatives in the production area.
RISE leads the work in collaboration with the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries, the Swedish Production Academy, Production 2030 and the National Node for Sustainable Production (SuPr). The work was initiated through a reference group with representatives from industry, institutes, academia and the social partners.
The plan is focusing on the challenges of the industry and the following overall challenges have been highlighted as central to the transition to sustainable production:
- Climate and environment in combination with competitiveness
- Skills supply
Based on the overall challenges, key development areas have also been raised that enable adjustment. These enablers are:
- Production development
- Circular transition
- Digital transformation
- Competence transition and education
Forum for Sustainable Production
For the continued work, the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries has created Forum for Sustainable Production, which gives RISE the task of annually revising the future plan.
Participating in the work are the Technology Companies, the Swedish Production Academy, Production 2030 and the National Node for Sustainable Production (SuPr), IF Metall, Vinnova and Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth.
The work is led by Björn Ekelund, Ericsson, appointed by the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries. The reference group of the Association of Swedish Engineering is also the reference group for Forum for Sustainable Production.
