Axfoundation is an independent, non-profit organization whose objective is to establish venues and conditions for real change that propel us toward a sustainable society. Our work often involves building bridges between researchers, experts, decision-makers and practitioners. Both research and experience show that collaborations between disciplines and across industries are a very effective way to generate new ideas and solutions.

Our mission statement
Axfoundation is a catalyst that challenges, arouses debate, inspires, spreads knowledge and drives processes that lead to sustainable action and transformative change. Our proximity to the many companies in the Axel Johnson Group gives us insight into the practical sustainability problems with which the business sector is struggling. It also reinforces our idea of entrepreneurship as a force for change.
