Webinar series: Nordic Net-Zero Weeks

26.09.23 | Event
Nordic Net-Zero Weeks
In this webinar series on Nordic climate neutrality, we will share insights on a set of topics of relevance for achieving climate neutrality in the Nordic region, aiming to share experiences and inspire across borders.


26.09 - 03.10.2023

With global greenhouse gas emissions at their highest levels in human history, the need for rapid transformation of societies is immense. Science calls for immediate and deep emission reductions across all sectors to avoid accelerating climate change. Hence, countries that have the tools, know-how and institutional and financial capacity must step up and lead by example. The Nordic region is well prepared to take on this responsibility and has a strong track record of leading by example.


The webinar series is a part of the project “Nordic Stocktake and Vision – Pathways to Climate Neutrality”, carried out by a consortium consisting of the organizations CONCITO, CICERO, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, University of Iceland and Reykjavik University, and Tyrsky Consulting. The project is a part of the initiative “Climate transition in the Nordics” to support the Nordic Vision 2030. The overall aim of the Nordic Vision is to become the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030.

All times are CET.

26 September 10:30 AM: Carbon Pricing (University of Iceland & Reykjavik University)

Effective carbon pricing is necessary to create the enabling environment for mitigation. In this webinar we will discuss the current state of carbon pricing in the Nordic countries and more.

27 September, 8:30 AM: Biofuels (Tyrsky Consulting & IVL)

Biofuels have been one of the key tools to cut emissions from road transport in the Nordic countries. However, concerns about fuel prices and sustainability have led to some countries revisiting their plans. The webinar discusses the future of biofuel blending obligations and the alternatives Nordic policymakers have available.

29 September, 2:00 PM: Decarbonizing the Nordic power system – Securing supply and re-ducing unwanted distributional consequences (CICERO)

In this webinar, we discuss challenges and opportunities for the Nordic power system given ambitious climate policy targets, broad electrification, and the fast growth of renewable electricity production.

2 October, 2:00 PM: Consumption-based emissions analyses – how and why? (CONCITO).

In this webinar, we will explore the role of consumption-based emissions modelling and accounting. Our three keynotes will present their work with this, as well as how they have worked with the results in communicating climate impacts globally, nationally, and locally, and in relation to policy and planning for sustainable transitions.

3 October, 9:30 AM: CCS/CDR (IVL & Tyrsky Consulting)

In this webinar, speakers from across the Nordic countries will share experiences on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). We will discuss what the most significant opportunities and barriers are and in what way Nordic collaboration could make significant contributions to support development of CCS/CDR in the Nordic region.
