LEAD

At LEAD our objective is to accelerate the development of start-ups by providing idea owners and entrepreneurs with a wide range of directed resources and services for a faster and more secure growth. LEAD offers entrepreneurs with innovative and scalable ideas and large growth potential, from academia as well as industry, an efficient process to fast and securely develop the ideas to strong and expansive businesses.

LEAD supports and challenges you as an entrepreneur to aim higher and reach further. Through a dynamic process that adapts to where you are in your company journey, LEAD adds tools, models and experience to help you build a sustainable company that has the potential to make a big impact. LEAD has in 2020 made calculations on net positivity in some of the companies and sees that some of the companies reach the potential to account for 25% of Sweden's total emissions in 10 years.

Toyota Material Handling

Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing is one of the largest warehouse truck manufacturing facilities in the world. Our mission is to bring you exceptional efficiency to your material handling operations. As a company we believe in our employees as much as we believe in future trends of logistics.

Toyota Industries Corporation’s Environmental Vision aims to contribute to a low-carbon society through zero carbon emissions from our products and operations by 2050. In our own operations, we aim to switch to 100% renewable by 2021, something our factory in Mjölby achieved in 2019. We will also explore possibilities to reduce water use and enhance recycling and reuse.

We have eight well-defined sustainability goals that link to the UN's global Agenda 2030. We call it Tyrén's own Agenda 2030.

Net climate footprint 0. One of Tyrén's eight sustainability goals is to drastically reduce our business' CO2 load. We work hard to reduce emissions from business trips and business commuting, from our work vehicles and through clear communication linked to purchasing. We work to compensate for the emissions we cannot get rid of.
