In addition to the offices in London, Oslo and Stuttgart, we continue our strategic development of the Canadian and East African markets. Here, we are tackling the big challenges of health, climate and urbanisation, which are key gateways to the really big North American and African markets. Examples such as the World Bank-funded Panzi Hospital run by Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr Denis Mukwege in the Bukavo province or the newly won contract for Montreal’s new climate-neutral Le Hippodrome district show how strong the Scandinavian expertise is.
– Our international activities have developed significantly over the past year. By working in countries with a different context to our own, we challenge our views and norms. But beyond a valuable and mutual exchange of knowledge, the international expansion is a way to secure future business by spreading our innovations in really big markets, says Carl Bäckstrand.
