How Identity can lead the transformation.

The rise of the sustainability agenda has given Danmarsks organisations and companies a new focus topic.

At IDna Group, we encourage organisations to think beyond compliance and start working strategically with sustainability by understanding who they are, what their purpose is, and where they can make the most significant impact. Thus, we clarify how sustainability can become an engine for innovation and a new possibility for increasing relevance, members, and supporters.

Join us when we exchange experiences and know-how on how Danish organisations and companies can turn sustainability into an opportunity and gain crucial insights on how to execute your transformation.
