Roadmap to fossil freedom

Large scale change is happening.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time – our world urgently needs to change and find alternative ways of powering and heating.

To contribute to the solution and become fossil free within one generation, Vattenfall needs to reduce its CO2 emissions and thereby reduce its carbon footprint throughout the entire value chain. The goal is climate neutrality for our own operations, our suppliers and our customers. To make it happen, we are working determinedly together with customers, partners, authorities, and cities. We call this our CO2 roadmap.

Our journey to fossil freedom

By divesting our lignite operations in 2016 and phasing-out hard coal assets, we have reduced our emissions to around 12 million tonnes.
