Sustainable artist of the year
Stefan Sundström

During the Grammys, the Sustainable Artist of the Year award was also presented, a scholarship instituted by Oatly and Grammys. The jury’s motivation is:

“If the Sustainable Artist of the Year had different subcategories, Stefan Sundström would probably have combed home as his involvement includes sustainable home cultivation, the sea state and soil ecosystems, forestry and agricultural issues, anti-flight initiatives, sustainable touring, and much more. This is evident in his lyrics, books, stage performances and chronicles, participation in podcasts and radio programs, and not least in his many appearances as a public figure. Add to that the fact that Stefani basically lives self-sufficiently. Such a very well-deserved recipient of the scholarship Sustainable Artist of the Year 2021! ”
