“In June, I worked my last day at Trossa AB. But a lot is going on in the sustainability world right now, which is why it was time for me to move on to new challenges,” Clara Hamrén writes on LinkedIn. “From today, I work as ESG Manager at Norron Asset Management. I now look forward to continuing to work with sustainability in the business community together with my colleagues at Norron.”
