Increasing competitiveness of Swedish industries by becoming fossil free

Malmö

Event information

Part of Arena: Smart Industry.

In 2017, the Swedish parliament adopted a climate policy framework for Sweden. The framework is based on the agreement reached in the Cross-Party Committee on Environmental Objectives and consists of new climate goals, a climate act and a climate policy council. A long-term climate goal was introduced, which means that by 2045 at the latest Sweden will have no net emissions of greenhouse gases.

The industry and transport sectors represent a big share of the Swedish emissions and can therefore be a big part of the solution. Industries and companies are starting to see business opportunities in a transformation and realise that it is no burden being a forerunner in the efforts to reduce emissions and contribute to a fossil free society.

The seminar will focus on the driving force and the methods used gathering sectors with different preconditions and challenges. Representatives from different sectors will discuss some of the newly launched roadmaps describing how their sector can become fossil free and reach increased competitiveness as well as their next step in implementing the roadmap strategies and what support they need from policy makers.
