The goal of this project is to support social enterprises in efforts to improve their sustainability by promoting exemplary businesses that have already progressed towards this ideal. Social Entrepreneurs in the Øresund region possess admirable passion and commitment towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically goal number 13. Goal 13 entails adapting to climate change while investing in decreasing the atmospheric abundance of carbon. With the support of our sponsors, Social Entrepreneurs in Denmark and Gaia Trust, summaries of fifty social enterprises were written and thirty-one interviews were conducted. The information gathered may assist other enterprises with increasing their efforts in fighting climate change and creating an environmentally sustainable future.
