Increasing competitiveness of Swedish industries by becoming fossil free


Event information

Part of Arena: Smart Industry.

In newly launched roadmaps, different sectors of the Swedish industry describe how they can become fossil free while increasing their competitiveness. This seminar focuses on the challenges and possibilities on the road ahead.

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 realize that it is no burden being a forerunner in the efforts to reduce emissions and contribute to a fossil free society.

In the seminar representatives from different sectors will discuss 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.
