Leading the green transition

In the race to the top for climate leadership, two regions stand out – the UK and the Nordics. Although the UK now has stronger climate goals, arguably the Nordics lead the effort to transform industry, business and society. If British people want to understand more what is coming down the pike, they need look no further than across the North Sea.

Now, Mundus Nordic Green News is bringing you the latest on the green transition – free and direct to your inbox, each weekday.

Launched in the summer of 2020, Mundus Nordic Green News follows the green transition in the Nordics with curated stories for the media, businesspeople, policy experts and anyone who wants to understand what works and what does not. Our mission is to contribute to the exponential scale-up of climate trade, focusing on the green industrialisation of the economy. We identify and report the stories with the greatest international relevance – from clean hydrogen and CCS to Greta Thunberg.

Last week’s highlights

The biggest story came from Finland, whose government has decided on clear measures to halve transport emissions by 2030. In addition to more walking and bicycling, Finland will rely initially on a large-scale take up of electricity and biogas, before new biofuels and “mobility services” come into effect later in the decade. Hydrogen development continues to receive a lot of attention, especially in Norway, as companies position themselves in the hope of becoming a winner. Meanwhile, last year’s stock market rockets, are falling back towards earth, given tricky times for market leaders, Vestas, Orsted and the Aker babies in Norway.
