The Sweden Green Tech Building project was initially started by representatives of the green MD network. The idea came from the fact that Sweden holds the Presidency of the EU during the second half of 2009. During these 6 months the world's focus is on our country and it is a unique opportunity to show what we have to offer.
The fundamental question facing SGTB was: How can we increase Swedish exports of Green Business?
The SGTB project began in a building, in the heart of Stockholm, at Klarabergsgatan 37. The property, with its unique location in the city centre, was extremely interesting both as a meeting place and as a centre for showcasing green technology. The building with its large areas of space below street level has great potential. A Swedish showroom is now being built here for green technology, conferences and for events. Above ground there are five floors, four of which are used by the SGTB. This is where the partners are based and where they work together for greater knowledge and to develop their businesses.
The name was changed in the beginning of 2010 to better reflect that the objective is to be a market arena for green technology. The name changed to Swedish Green Tech Arena.
If your company or organisation is interested in promoting your own solutions or interested in what swedish green tech can offer, then the Swedish Green Tech Arena is the forum for you.
There are many companies in Sweden that can supply green technology to the rest of the world through their system solutions, products and services, thereby pushing development forward in a sustainable way. We see that the need for green technology is growing in all markets.
The Sweden Green Tech Arena is a National Arena for people and companies who are driven by green technology business. There is direct access to the companies and the expertise within finance, legal matters, technology and marketing - in fact everything that is needed to be successful in green business.
Together, with our combined strength built on political courage, entrepreneurship, academic reason, sound finances and leading-edge competence, we shall create new business opportunities. That is what we call Green Business.
From 2009, the focus areas in the Swedish Green Tech Arena are:
