Sustainable finance - the Nordic way

The path we are on is not sustainable regarding the limits of our planet. If nobody slows us down, we may be on a highway to hell. What is the best way for the Nordics to reduce global emissions? Is building battery factories in Swedish Lapland the answer? What are the implications for sustainable finance? Should finance ministers get their act together? Is there any Nordic value-added in the debate?

During the UNFCCC's 25th climate change negotiations (COP25) in Madrid, the Nordic Council of Ministers will host a Nordic pavilion in the Spanish capital and a larger hub in Stockholm. Join our debate!

Time: 15.00-16.00 on Tuesday 10 December 2019
Venue: Norrsken House, Birger Jarlsgatan 57C, Stockholm
Venue: Nordic pavillion, IFEMA, hall 6, Madrid
