Our vision and activities
The Haga initiative's vision is a profitable business sector without climate impact.
Members of the Haga Initiative act together to create the business conditions needed to reach this goal. Members act as climate action role models within their respective business sectors.
The Haga Initiative operates in the business sector. The network cooperates with politicians and policymakers to improve the prerequisites for increased climate effort in business.

The Haga Initiative sets climate targets in line with the 1.5 degree target, and supports its members in making their value chains more climate efficient.
The Haga Initiative is primarily a climate responsibility network, but also supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that both impact and are impacted by climate-related issues.
The Haga Initiative members are committed to openly calculate and disclose their climate impact, and to be transparent about the reduction of their carbon emissions, which makes the Haga Initiative a credible network within the climate field.
