What is a society of the future?

The society of the future focuses on how Knowit contributes to sustainability beyond its own company. Knowit reports its social commitments, how the Company works to support local NGOs and how it takes responsibility in global issues. This means, for example, that we support politics, support industrial initiatives aligned with the 1.5°C ambition and ensure that organizations to which the company belongs do not oppose the company's own actions. It also includes helping management and employees adopt sustainable practices and finance projects outside the company's value chain that help eliminate or completely avoid emissions.

Initiatives & partnerships to accelerate toward Agenda 2030

Digitalization has the power to transform society for the better. This is something that has been undervalued by society, for several reasons. Therefore, Knowit needs to use its network and its position to influence and accelerate action in society, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to realize the Paris Agreement.


Our partnerships and initiatives:



Knowit is an active member of the non-profit industry association Digitaliseringskonsulterna (The digitization consultants), who gather consulting companies behind the fossil-free roadmap and an ambitious climate agenda. The purpose of the association is to collaborate to help society see and use the opportunities of digitalization to drive rapid climate change.

Changers Hub

In collaboration with the innovation house Changers Hub, Knowit wants to contribute to increased diversity and create a more inclusive culture in the digitalization sector, and ultimately in society. Changers Hub is a nonprofit organization with the vision of democratizing success, so that all young people will have the same opportunities, regardless of their background.

Changers Hub is helping Knowit in its diversity efforts, for instance by contributing with workshops, competence sharing, and inspiration lectures. Through the collaboration, Knowit gets an opportunity to participate in the organization’s mentorship program, offer corporate visits, and increase awareness of Knowit as an employer.

Knowit supports the UN refugee agency UNHCR and its work for displaced children and families. This is done jointly within the corporation through fundraising for UNHCR’s project “Educate a child”, a project aimed at all children and youths who are refugees and therefore cannot access education. Through the initiative “Educate a child”, hundreds of thousands of children and youths in twelve countries are given the opportunity to attend school.
