21 November 18:00 - 21:00Norrsken House

How can we decarbonize society
through innovation? 

To meet the challenges of climate change we need transformation on an unprecedented scale. At the same time, demand for the carbon intensive materials, products and services that have built our modern societies show no sign of slowing down. Change needs to happen fast.

We need more innovation across different sectors and companies throughout value chains, in order to make decarbonization of industry happen. At Vattenfall we believe this is possible and we believe that electrification is a source of innovation and an enabler of fossil free living. Today Vattenfall has industrial partnerships focused on production of fossil free steel (HYBRIT), producing fossil free biodiesel (Preem), decarbonizing cement (Cementa) and more partnerships will follow.

Finding new ways of working throughout value chains and between industries is not easy, but it is possible. Together with our panel and with you we will identify the challenges and opportunities moving forward to decarbonize society. What options do we have?
