Emma Fromberg

 has a background in industrial design engineering

and is currently part of the University of Cambridge

Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).

At CISL, she is the course director of

the Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Value Chains and

the Postgraduate Diploma in Sustainable Business.


Before joining the University, she was part of the circular design team

at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation - a think-thank

whose mission is to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.


Outside of her day-to-day job, she takes part in Arctic expeditions to collect data for climate change research and tells the story about this fast-changing ecosystem and what we can learn from it.

In her keynotes, Emma addresses a variety of topic ranging from

circular economy, sustainable product design - to more holistic

climate change related topics, specifically in the context of the Arctic.
