The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra has teamed up in 2015 with distinguished global partners and continued the work in 2016 with the Nordic Council of Ministers and institutions from all the Nordic countries to answer a simple question: how far could we go simply by scaling up already proven low-carbon solutions? The Green to Scale project has combined innovative analysis with active communication. The results show how implementing existing low-carbon solutions can take us a long way in tackling the global climate crisis. The next phase zooms in on selected cities.


Do you have a question or a suggestion for us? Or would you like to explore possibilities for co-operation? We look forward to hearing from you.


Green to Scale has been produced in co-operation with distinguished partner institutions. The first project was concluded with global partners in 2015, and the work has continued with Nordic partners since 2016.

Partners in 2017-2018

The new phase of Green to Scale zooms in on selected countries, moving closer to implementation. Sitra serves as the project secretariat and CONCITO from Denmark, CICERO from Norway and University of Iceland are represented in the steering group. Nordic Council of Ministers has included Green to Scale in its Prime Ministers’ Initiative and kindly provided funding. The analysis is carried out by SEI Tallinn, supported by local experts such as SEI Africa.
