Climate strategy and related activities

Combating climate change is the most significant environmental challenge of our time. With grave environmental and social impacts predicted, urgent action is required to decrease CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels.

Vattenfall has a responsibility to decrease its CO2 emissions by improving and developing innovative technologies. Vattenfall's climate initiatives also include promoting a long-term framework for global emissions trading, initiating a study on where and how CO2 reductions are possible and creating an international industrial network for climate policy issues.


Role in CANES

CANES is an interesting initiative, well in line with Vattenfall's ambition to help ourselfs increasing our understanding of essential issues through scientific research. Equally important is the possibility to take part in an open forum for discussions on the findings in cooperation with researchers as well as other industrial partners and stakeholders.
