GreenIron in panel discussion on climate goals

April 17, 2024

On April 16th, GreenIron’s CCO Tanja Ilic was invited to the Haga Initiative’s seminar in Stockholm on the theme “Minus 90% by 2040 – how does the business sector be affected by the EU’s new climate goals?”

Tanja took part in a panel of both business and political professionals represented by Maria Sandell from JM, Alarik Sandrup from Lantmännen, Lina Håkansdotter from H2 GreenSteel, Jennie Cato from Scania, and Åsa Domeij from Axfood.

The panel debate touched the following questions:

  • What is required to achieve the EU’s climate goals (2030, 2040) and what is Sweden’s contribution to this?
  • What are the key conclusions for Sweden with the 2040 target?
  • How will Sweden’s and the EU’s competitiveness be affected by the 2040 target?
  • Are ambitious 2040 goals a threat or opportunity for the business sector?

GreenIron’s clear message to our politicians is to create a path for businesses to grow in a global context and secure the Swedish industry; thereby we need to think differently.

– The responsibility of politicians is to consistently steer the course, ensuring the establishment of clear regulations and fostering predictability. This, in turn, empowers Swedish businesses to make strategic investments and spearhead the nation’s future progress, says Tanja Ilic, COO at GreenIron.
