Polestar Takes The Lead On Sustainability with Fredrika Klarén
Listen now
Robert is joined this week by Fredrika Klarén, Head of Sustainability at Polestar, to hear about their ambitions to become leaders in sustainable EV manufacturing. Working with Volvo and a range of recycling partners around the world, Polestar are building the capability to recycle and extend the life of many of the components used within their EVs, therefore easing the burden on the wider supply chains that these products are sourced from. Fredrika joined Polestar in April 2020 to drive the company’s sustainability ambitions forward on issues such as climate-neutrality, circularity, transparency and inclusion. Fredrika is chair of the board for Agenda 2030 West, an organisation enabling partnership between academia, business, civil society and public sector for the 17 SDGs. She is a firm believer in the role of business as a catalyst for sustainable development and has held sustainability positions over the past decade at IKEA and Swedish fashion retailer KappAhl. She studied Civil Engineering with a focus on Environmental Systems Analysis at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.
