PARTNERS

At Leaderlab we see customers as partners. Working with partnerships that might seem obvious. But it’s a philosophy. A philosophy that have lead us to work with pioneering organisations like, i.e. Nike, IKEA, NASA, USAID, eBay, Novozymes, Kvadrat, The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The City of Copenhagen, Gehl Achitects and many more.

Here are what some of our partners from LAUNCH and Sustainable Build are saying about our work.

Steve Howard

Steve Howard

CSO, IKEA (Former) + Co-Chair, WEF

“Let’s not be complacent. There are huge opportunities if we collaborate. But it requires everybody to laser focus – and LAUNCH can really contribute to that.”

Hannah Jones

Hannah Jones

VP, Sustainable Business & Innovation Accelerator

“The LAUNCH approach has been successful in identifying and supporting powerful innovations. We believe that the innovations required to create the future won’t come from a single source. Not from science. Not from technology. Not from governments. Not from business. But from all of us.”

Claus Stig-Pedersen

Claus Stig-Pedersen

Senior Director, Sustainability, Novozymes.

“What is special about LAUNCH is the strong partnership of both government, academic and industry. Public Private Partnerships is exactly what we need to help sustainable innovations go to scale.”

Martin Lidegaard

Martin Lidegaard

Minister of Foreing Affairs (Former) & MP, Denmark

“The unique thing about LAUNCH is the collaboration between private and public institutions – we must provide the regulatory framework and private companies must deliver the innovative new products that will excite costumers.”

Dr. Cady Coleman

Dr. Cady Coleman

NASA Astronaut & Ph.d. in Chemistry

“Never before has international collaboration been more important to accelerate our transition to a more sustainable way of life on earth. I love LAUNCH – you guys are my family.”

Håkan Nordkvist

Håkan Nordkvist

Head of Sustainability Innovation, IKEA Group & LAUNCH Partnero

“We are working to make our whole product range more sustainable, including developing and expanding our use of materials that are better for people and the planet and playing an active role in the transition to a circular economy. LAUNCH is a collaboration of organisations committed to scaling up new sustainable materials and innovations and we are delighted to be involved.”

Anders Byriel

Anders Byriel

CEO, Kvadrat & Co-Chair Circular Economy Advisory Board

“Circular Economy is on everybody’s lips these years. But action rather than talk and reports will drive the transition. That’s why I love working with pioneering partners and innovators through LAUNCH.”

Chris Librie

Chris Librie

Senior Director - Global Impact & Giving

“Through Ebay, we make it as easy as possible for consumers to sell and participate in the power of the Circular Economy. We are excited to join this extraordinary network of LAUNCH Circular that nurtures innovation and drives towards systems change.”

Del Hudson

Del Hudson

Head of US & North America Operations, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

“What has been really interesting today has been to explore the role of a Circular Society. I think there are new conversations that are going to emerge, but ultimately this is just about something that’s better than the broken system that we’ve created.”

David Nugent

David Nugent

Co-founder, COLORIFIX and 
LAUNCH Circular Innovator 2017

“How often do you get in front of the world’s biggest apparel company (Nike), the world’s biggest home furnisher (IKEA) and a world leading enzyme producer (Novozymes) in one room! The LAUNCH Forum has been truly amazing for us.”

Thomas Brorsen Pedersen

Thomas Brorsen Pedersen

Founder, POND, LAUNCH Innovator 2015

“LAUNCH has been amazing for pond. You guys have played a major role in our journey. We would never be where we are today if it where not for LAUNCH.”

Elena Dieckmann

Elena Dieckmann

Co-Founder, Aeropowder & LAUNCH Innobvator 2017

“At LAUNCH you’re basically in one room with 50 iconic experts of sustainable projects and thought leaders. So for us it was inspiring on the vision side but also very practical hands-on advice — how we can structure things, how we can raise investment, seal the deal. There’s so much support and it’s better than 20 coaching sessions from a single advisor.”

Thor Möger Pedersen

Thor Möger Pedersen

CEO, Pension Danmark

“Pension Denmark is partner in Sustainable Build because we want to play an active role in driving the sustainability agenda. As a pension company we are always interested in how to create and unite quality of life and sustainability with commercially attractive projects. “

* Leaderlab is co-founder and co-operator of Sustainable Build.

Mads Lebech

Mads Lebech

Managing Director, The Danish Industry Foundation

“The market for sustainable construction and sustainable building materials is big and growing – and thus interesting for Danish companies. However, industry players are very dependent on each other when innovation is needed, as new materials, products and solutions need to work together across the industry. Therefore, they can have difficulty creating innovation alone. The aim of SUSTAINABLE BUILD is therefore to combine the industry and increase innovation, knowledge sharing and growth across the construction industry, “

Flemming Besenbacher

Flemming Besenbacher

Chairman of Carlsberg Group and the Carlsberg Foundation

“LAUNCH is a great example of how global companies, governments and investors can work with circular entrepreneurs and startups. I look forward to joining and speaking at the forum and meeting the partners and 8 selected innovators.”

Signe Kongebro

Signe Kongebro

Partner & Head of Sustainability, Henning Larsen Architects.

“It has been great to get to meet with the innovators and innovations that emerge in the construction sector. I dream that in the coming years we will be able to build some more lighthouse projects that can inspire nationally and internationally. With this year’s new innovators in SUSTAINABLE BUILD, we are expanding the scope.”
