Mistra Carbon Exit


New PhD in Energy Technology within Mistra Carbon Exit


Ida Karlsson is joining the Mistra Carbon Exit team at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg.

Being part of and able to contribute to such an important research project as the Mistra Carbon Exit is to me an utter privilege, a privilege which has led me back to academia and to Sweden after a decade in various sustainability roles in industry and international institutions, says Ida Karlsson.

With a Master in Biotechnology and Environmental Management as a base, Ida has explored the sustainability field with experiences ranging from managing projects and building capacity as an environmental management consultant, performing environmental risk assessments for mainstream sustainability integration in the Australian finance sector, to enhancing the sustainability governance and founding a sustainability research portfolio at the Maersk Group. Ida has also done work to incorporate environmental aspects in the global procurement operations of the UN Office for Project Services.

Finally, I am a strong supporter of bridging the gap between academia and centres of decision-making, why I appreciate the aim of Mistra Carbon Exit to take an active role in societal debate and contributing to the international climate cooperation.
