Vattenfall is taking part in several seminars in connection with the international environmental conference, Stockholm +50, which is taking place this week. Annika Ramsköld, Vattenfall’s Head of Sustainability, is one of the participants invited.
Stockholm +50 is an international environmental protection conference organised by the UN and held in Stockholm from June 2 to 3. The conference is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the UN’s first environmental protection conference held in Stockholm in 1972, which was a milestone in international environmental protection work.
The aim is to accelerate global work within the environmental and climate area, recovery after Covid-19, and the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals developed by the UN.
Alongside Stockholm +50, several other important conferences will be held in Stockholm during the week. One is the global session organised by the UN Science, Policy and Business Forum, UN-SPBF, to which Vattenfall’s Head of Sustainability Annika Ramsköld has been invited to take part in a panel discussion on the environmental work of both the present day and the future. The discussion will be held on June 1 at 12:05 PM.
"This is yet another proof of our strengths that we again are invited to join international conferences on the climate and the environment. Politicians, industry leaders and other stakeholders want to listen to us and learn about how we're working to make fossil-free living possible. Among other things, I will be highlighting how we see sustainability as the core of our business plan and also highlighting our partnerships with Hybrit, HySkies, First Movers Coalition, etc.," says Annika Ramsköld.
Vattenfall is one of the founding members of the First Movers Coalition, FMC, an initiative in which companies and states commit to lead the way in the climate and sustainability transition by demanding and thereby accelerating the development of climate-smart materials and transports, e.g. fossil-free steel, cement and transport by road and air.
Head of Strategy Andreas Regnell is taking part in a panel discussion on FMC arranged by LeadIT, another initiative Vattenfall has been part of since its inception. LeadIT stands for Leadership Group for Industry Transition which, through partnerships between the public and private sectors, aims to support the industry transition and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. The LeadIT Industry Transition Dialogue will take place on June 1.
