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 generating electricity and heat.
To contribute to the solution and become fossil free within one generation, Vattenfall needs to reduce its CO2 emissions and thereby reduce its carbon emissions throughout the entire value chain. The goal is net zero by 2040* 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.
*Vattenfall follows the Science Based Targets initiative requirements for the power sector when referring to net zero. Effectively, this means:
- Reducing scope 1+2 CO2e intensity to 9 g/kWh (over 90% reduction)
- Reducing all scope 3 emissions by 90% or more
- Neutralising the remaining emissions with carbon removals
