COP27 takes place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, between 6-18 November 2022. The Swedish delegation includes Alfa Laval together with 25 other companies, as well as representatives from the Swedish government, research institutes and expert organisations. One of Alfa Laval’s roles at the conference will be to moderate and host discussions regarding energy efficiency, long duration energy storage and the Swedish industry’s transition towards the use of fossil-free steel in products and processes. The programme will be livestreamed and recorded by several organisations including Business Sweden, McKinsey and We Don’t Have Time.
“For me, summits are about action,” says Anna Celsing, Chief Sustainability Officer, Alfa Laval. “We need to start executing and implementing – and we need to do it now. We have the technologies, and we are committed to being front runners, to take the lead in the race towards net zero. We encourage partnerships, as we believe that teaming up with other experts and technology providers will speed up the pace, and COP27 is an excellent opportunity to meet other companies that share our vision for a fair and just transition.”
“To reach the Paris Agreement we must work across sectors to speed up the transition. It is a two-folded approach, implementing existing technologies and accelerating deployment and commercialisation of innovation towards net zero,” says Madeleine Gilborne, Head of Clean Technologies and VP Energy Division, Alfa Laval. “We have technologies today that can contribute to reaching the Paris Agreement and we want to make these solutions visible to policy makers.”
