Sara Nordbrand new Head of Daring Goals and acting Head of Sustainability

Sara Nordbrand, currently Head of Sustainabilty at The Church of Sweden, will join Telia Company as Head of Daring Goals. The Daring Goals state that the Company will be CO2 neutral with zero waste, not only within its own operations, but throughout the value chain by 2030.

Telia Company adopted its Daring Goals earlier this year and Sara Nordbrand will join the Company as Head of Daring Goals in mid-October.

“I am very much looking forward to joining a company that is stepping up its efforts within areas such as climate change and social inclusion. This is a time when bold and collective action is highly needed. Telia Company’s commitment to the Daring Goals is but one example of such an approach. The work requires innovation, responsible business practices and collaboration with stakeholders. I look forward to being part of that exciting journey together with colleagues,” Nordbrand says.

Cecilia Lundin, Head of People & Brand, at Telia Company says: “Sara joins the company at a time when further steps will be taken to increase Telia’s positive impact on society. Her main focus will be on our Daring Goals and her experience from initiatives where companies, the public sector, academia and civil society work closely together will be useful in her role at Telia Company.”

Sara Nordbrand will also become acting Head of Sustainabilty. Anne Larilahti, current Head of Sustainability has decided to leave Telia Company to pursue new challenges.

“Anne has played an important role in the company, leading the sustainability strategy work and laying the foundation for our Daring Goals. Her dedication has been noticed both internally as well as externally, and it has supported our journey towards becoming a loved brand. I want to thank Anne for her great contribution and efforts, and I wish her all the best,” says Cecilia Lundin.

A recruitment process for a new Head of Sustainability has been initiated.
