CO2 roadmap

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Greenhouse gas emissions need to stop by the second half of this century if we are to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. A great deal of effort is put into limiting the global warming further, to only 1.5 degrees. Meeting this target requires the world to stop all CO2 emissions between 2030 and 2050.

The graph shows how Vattenfall's emissions have changed over time, as well as our forecast for the near future.

Our road to fossil freedom

A new way for properties to produce their own renewable energy.

A network of charging stations to accelerate the transition to electric cars.

A new means of steel production that emits water rather than carbon dioxide.
