Nyamko Sabuni joins Kappahl Group's Board of Directors

Nyamko Sabuni has been appointed as a new member of the Board of Directors of Kappahl AB. Nyamko Sabuni will contribute to Kappahl's growth journey with extensive experience in sustainability, diversity and inclusion from both the public and private sectors.

- Kappahl is on an exciting development journey focusing on sustainable transition and a clearer customer centricity, and as part of this we are strengthening the Board with Nyamko Sabuni.  With her solid experience from both politics and business, Nyamko will be a valuable addition to the Board," says Thomas Gustafsson, Chairman of the Board of Kappahl.

Nyamko Sabuni was Sweden's Minister for Integration from 2006 to 2010, Minister for Gender Equality from 2006 to 2013 and the leader of the Liberal Party between 2019 and 2022. She has also been Vice President and Head of Sustainability at the engineering and design company Afry (formerly ÅF Pöyry) and worked in the communications industry in various positions. 

- Companies that see sustainability and transition as business-driven rather than administrative burdens are winners in the long run. Kappahl is one such company. I look forward to contributing to the transition that the textile industry is undergoing and that is crucial for the climate and the environment globally. With my expertise from politics and as a former sustainability director, I want to contribute to the important task of the board when it comes to compliance with the new sustainability regulation, CSRD, says Nyamko Sabuni.
