Energy transition - business sector roadmapping process

Business sector takes the lead – pushing climate action for competitiveness

This webinar gathers representatives from various sectors to discuss roadmaps and present the most important climate actions and policy that will help them reach net-zero emissions. The representatives from the selected sectors will mainly discuss the questions: What are the driving forces behind these strong actions by the sectors? And what are the pros and cons of having such a bottom-up policy development process?

The webinar is organized by The Swedish WEC member committee together with Fossil Free Sweden and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences on May 20, 13:00-14:00 CEST. LeadIT’s Gökce Mete will share her reflections on the discussions that take place.
