The Gothenburg Award for Sustainable Development is one of the most prestigious sustainability awards world wide with recent winners such as Al Gore, Kofi Annan and Gro Harlem Brundtland. The 2012 award is going to entrepeneurs Mike Biddle and Björn Söderberg.
Björn Söderberg, founder of the Fair Enterprise Network, builds up and develops responsible companies in Nepal in the area of sustainable waste recycling. At just 19, Björn Söderberg went to Nepal as a volunteer, where he encountered both poverty and a river full of refuse.
The refuse was a resource when starting his first company, Watabaran, which manufactures paper from waste, as well as in his latest company, Shuba Briquettes Pvt Ltd, which manufactures briquettes from industrial and factory waste.The companies combine profitable business activity with the basic values of ethics, democracy and eco-awareness, contributing in this way to sustainable development.
