We're all trapped in a system that's addicted to fossil fuels. At Vattenfall we're helping society break free from this dependency. We're committed to building a future where everyone can choose fossil free ways to move, make and live. We call it fossil freedom.

CO2 roadmap

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. A great deal of effort is put into limiting the global warming further to 1.5 degrees.

Meeting this goal means greenhouse gas emissions need to be roughly halved by 2030 and to achieve net zero by the second half of the century.*
