Position Green launches Sustainable Edge podcast: A dialogue with clean tech leaders

Position Green, hailing as the Nordic region’s paramount independent pure play sustainability enterprise, has unveiled its brand-new podcast series titled “Sustainable Edge” to complement its annual ESG100 report.

This series will be steered by Joachim Nahem, Co-Founder and Executive Chair of Position Green. It promises to bring forth a myriad of guests, each offering their unparalleled perspective on corporate sustainability transformation, ESG, and the strategies to leverage ESG data insights for actionable outcomes.

The first episode rolled out with an exclusive interview with Hege Marie Norheim, Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs & Sustainability at Freyr Battery Norway. This leading company, founded in Norway, specialises in eco-friendly, grid-level battery storage systems and boasts a prestigious listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

In a riveting discussion, host and guest delved deep into the core of energy transition. Norheim unfolded Freyr’s ambitious aims to offer industrial-scale green battery solutions, aimed at slashing global emissions and tackling the climate crisis head-on.

In a narrative that’s representative of many such podcast episodes, Norheim retraced Freyr’s voyage from its nascent stages to its IPO and subsequent listing, emphasising its steadfast dedication to a sustainable value chain and the rationale behind the notion that merely a ‘green’ product doesn’t suffice to expedite the energy transition.

Additional topics broached included insightful dialogues on ESG materiality, the intricate web of human rights within supply chains, global regulatory shifts in response to the United States’ Inflation Reduction Act, and the burgeoning green energy infrastructure.

Now in its sixth rendition, the ESG100 report, which this podcast accompanies, stands out as an industry milestone. It evaluates the readiness of listed firms in anticipation of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), slated to be ratified as EU legislation come 1 January 2024. This assessment spans the most colossal 100 companies from Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, encapsulating some of Europe’s most iconic corporate brands.

Position Green is already gearing up for its forthcoming podcast episodes, hinting at a star-studded guest list featuring names such as Alexandra Morris from Skagen Funds, Kiran Aziz from KLP, and Hugo Munthe-Kaas from DLA Piper Norway.

Enthusiasts can tune into these episodes and more via Position Green’s official website. Moreover, subscription and access are also available across platforms including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Audacy, and Deezer.
