Sustainable Business

A successful business strategy takes account of factors in the surrounding world, the business' impact on people, environment and society, and their financial impact on the company, as well as stakeholder requirements and expectations. Based on your business, targets and direction, We support you in the process of developing and implementing a value-creating strategy and act as an advisor and project manager in various sustainability issues and projects linked to the environment, social responsibility and sustainable corporate governance.

Board, Advisory Board
& Interim solutions

Do you need an interim sustainability manager, specialist, project manager or just an extra resource in your organization? Hiring us can be a safe and effective solution. We can cover anything from a few hours per week to full time at your location for a shorter or longer period of time. Katarina Skalare is also happy to take on board assignments and advisory board assignments and have experience from the steering group for the Sustainability Forum at Lund University, and as a former member of BoD of Heimstaden Bostad AB and from the non-profit sector.


By reporting accurately, transparently and in a balanced and comparable way, you can create value and build trust and credibility – a good foundation for long-term business relationships and a necessity when the CSRD, with its requirement for external review, comes into force. We support and guide you through everything from CSRD/ESRS, SFDR, TCFD, TNFD to GRI reporting.

We also support you in ESG evaluation of companies and operations. We offer advice and support in implementation linked to ESG dialogues, surveys, SFDR/PAI reporting, sustainability-linked financing, etc.

Sustainable financing

Does your company or business have ESG requirements and expectations from the financial market? Or are you a financial market participant and need support in the ESG evaluation of companies and operations? Hållbart by Skalare offers consulting services, advice and support in implementation linked to ESG dialogues, ESG surveys, SFDR/PAI reporting, sustainability-linked financing, etc.

We have good knowledge of EU Green Deal; the EU Platform on Sustainable Finance; EU Taxonomy; EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD/ESRS), EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive; EU Green Claims Directive; international sustainability initiatives, frameworks, and reporting standards, etc.


I have close to 30 years of experience in sustainability work in senior positions in everything from international groups to a local municipality-owned company as well as from consulting.

For the past almost six years, I have been part of an exciting journey in Heimstaden where I integrated sustainability in corporate governance, business model, corporate strategy and built processes and reporting structure from the ground up as well as a sustainability organization with branches in nine countries.

In parallel with this, I have been a member of the steering group for the Sustainability Forum at Lund University since 2014 and since 2020 I am chairman of the steering group. During 2020-2021 I was a board member of Heimstaden Bostad AB, Europe's second largest residential real estate company, which is owned by Heimstaden AB together with a number of institutional actors such as Alecta, Folksam Group and others.

In addition, my involvement in the non-profit sector, through, among other things, board work, has given additional dimensions to my leadership and strategic work. All this together gives me a fantastic breadth of knowledge, competence and experience.

Quote - former Client and Employer

Sustainability was a blanc sheet, almost unknown area to us around 2017. We took Katarina in as a consultant and
after having seen her competence we convinced her to join us in 2018, to help us set the structure to successfully meet our ambitions in sustainability. Katarina has done a tremendous job, and we are now delivering great results
because of the excellent work Katarina has done with us, building the strategy, structure, the team, and having
gained public recognition which has also rewarded us with high ratings.
CEO of Heimstaden/Heimstaden Bostad
