Congress for Environmental Advancement (CongressEA) was founded by serial entrepreneur Richard Lindberg and is headquartered in London. It was founded 2008 in Lund, Sweden where the organization initiated and led sustainability focused projects that relied on cross stakeholder collaboration as a key success factor. Close partnerships with marquee brands within business, academia, government, civil society and media produced a diverse set of projects ranging from live case competitions, capacity building for entrepreneurs and lobbying municipalities for low carbon commitments. 

The organization moved to London and specialized in sustainable finance and positive impact innovation through work for international clients, spanning civil society, multinational corporations and the governmental sector. The accumulated experience and knowledge is now helping clients get the most out of their commitments and projects geared towards creating positive impact in society.
