Founder and CEO
Erik Huss has 25 years of experience in science communication, PR, education, research in extreme environments and sustainability science. Erik has a background as a geographer, glaciologist and journalist. He has a broad view of sustainable communication from his experience in leading positions in advertising and marketing within international research on global environmental issues. Erik has been head of media for the Nobel Prizes at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and as an expert in Bonnier's Encyclopedia, Erik has written 450 articles in his area.
Erik has a military leadership training (UGL) and has carried out successful change processes at several of his positions and has driven brand processes that have been nominated for the Swedish Design Awards. As a leader, Erik is driven by the fact that employees working together in a team can reach far beyond what anyone can do alone. The future lies in finding solutions and strengths in people.
During his many years of field work, from desert studies in the Sahara to research expeditions in northern Lapland and Antarctica with focus on glaciology and climate science, Erik has gained insight into how much human society affects the planet. This insight must be quickly introduced into business so that we stay within the limits of what the planet can handle in a responsible manner.
