New director of Monday Morning Global Institute

Morten Nielsen has, with effect from March 1, started as director of Monday Morning Global Institute (MMGI). He is responsible for the development and implementation of Monday Morning’s international strategies and products within sustainability.
MMGI is a newly established company within Monday Morning, focusing on communicating solutions to a number of major global challenges. MMGI builds on the position Monday Morning already set out through the establishment of the green think tank Sustainia and the Global Opportunity Report and Network. All together, they represent the world’s largest base of sustainable solutions. MMGI, amongst other things, recently signed an agreement with the UN Global Compact on identifying how the United Nations 17 global goals for sustainable development can be transformed into new business opportunities.
Morten brings to MMGI his comprehensive and versatile international management experience in CSR and sustainable business. He has most recently been employed as Global Director of Corporate Communications & CSR at the Carlsberg Group, and has previously served in management positions including Bacardi-Martini and Unilever, where he has been responsible for communications, HR, and sales & marketing.
Morten has an MSc. in biology from the University of Copenhagen. He is 48, and lives with his wife and two great kids, who are 13 and 18 years old, in Virum, north of Copenhagen.

CEO for Sustainia nominated as Young Global Leader

Sustainia’s CEO, Laura Storm, has been invited to join the Young Global Leader community for 2016, in recognition of her work in reshaping the global narrative of sustainability. The YGLs named each year by the World Economic Forum have one thing in common – a desire to use their time and talent to help improve the state of the world.

Laura says: “Being named as a Young Global Leader is an enormous privilege and honor. I see this as my chance to help put the work of the people on the ground – the real-life action heroes – on the global agenda, and do my bit to help change the narrative around sustainability.

Since being founded four years ago, Sustainia’s work has reached millions of people all over the world, putting the spotlight on more than 3,500 viable solutions and collaborating with high profile activists, leaders and organisations.
