The session is also simultaneously interpreted into Arabic, French, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Spanish.

Anna Borg is also in focus in the podcast “Meet the leader”, published on 18 January, which is also produced by the World Economic Forum. In the one-to-one conversation podcast, the world’s top leaders, change-makers and experts share the projects that excite them and the habits they can’t work without.

The podcast is available on Spotify, Apple and other podcast hubs.

Anna Borg has met with John Kerry and Bill Gates before, most recently at the COP 26 climate change summit in Glasgow in November last year. Vattenfall then joined the First Movers Coalition, thereby committing to increasing the share of emerging technologies critical to the net-zero transition in its procurements.
