Our flagship report demonstrates, how much emissions could be reduced, if best Nordic low-carbon solutions were scaled up globally.

Scaling up best Nordic low-carbon solutions to reduce emissions globally

How much emissions could be reduced, if best Nordic low-carbon solutions were scaled up globally? This high-level event presents the flagship report Nordic Green to Scale developed jointly with distinguished partners in all five Nordic countries. The report demonstrates that we already have many tools available to cut emissions, covering 15 best practice Nordic low-carbon solutions and their scalability and emissions savings potential.

The results of the Nordic Green to Scale study are presented by Sitra’s Senior Advisor Oras Tynkkynen, who has already been to 17 COPs since Kyoto in 1997. Other speakers contributing to the dialogue on green growth include
