Agents of Sustainability
In 2015, we created the communication language for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Two years later, we translated the 169 targets—the driving forces of the agenda—into a comprehensive communication system. In reality, we turned sustainability into a periodic table.
Today, we are a growing consultancy. By combining our deep knowledge of sustainability, communication and design skills with business strategy and activation initiatives, we are accelerating the transformation to a sustainable future.
The New Division is building on 20 years of brand and advertising experience from the New York agency Trollbäck + Company. After creating the iconic language for the 17 Global Goals for the UN in 2015, Jakob Trollbäck founded The New Division, a sustainability consultancy working with strategy, communication and activation. We assist organizations, governments, corporations and investors play their part in the creation of a sustainable future.
