Energy and climate

Global warming and climate change poses a threat to the Earth – our societies and ecosystems. It is important to combat climate change to avoid more extreme weather, sea level rise, loss of Arctic ice and transformations of ecosystems. This calls for a holistic approach – to reduce the overall impact on climate without creating other environmental problems. Therefore, it is highly relevant both to promote reduced energy consumption, the shift to renewable energy, increase energy efficiency and reduce climate gas emissions to ensure more sustainable production and consumption.
