Director, Environmental Management Division
Worldwide, people have turned to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)for inspiration that redefines the very apex of human ingenuity. It is NASA's mission to "lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and bring new knowledge and opportunities back to earth."
Sustainability Strategy Manager
Sylvia Lee, who has over two decades of experience working on environmental issues and is now a Sustainability Strategy Manager at Facebook, is joining us to talk about Facebook’s sustainability efforts and its goal to create the most efficient data centers in the world, including its facility here in Luleå.
In 2016, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall joined forces to create HYBRIT – an initiative that endeavors to revolutionize steel-making. HYBRIT aims to replace coking coal, traditionally needed for ore-based steel making, with fossil-free hydrogen. The result will be the world’s first fossil-free steel-making technology, with virtually no carbon footprint.

More and more sectors are realizing that to reach climate targets, we will need more electricity, not less. Fossil free energy and electric solutions can minimize carbon emissions across sectors. Vattenfall operates the hydropower that fuels the region’s industries, but is also a key player in partnerships and innovation for the electrification of everything from transports to steel making.
Director of Growth
Climate action scenarios call for 100 million electric vehicles by 2030, and more and more sectors look to electricity as a substitute for fossil power. Battery production needs to be scaled up fast, and sustainably. With the ambition to produce the world’s greenest batteries on an unprecedented scale, Northvolt has taken on the challenge.
Head of Production
SunPine is a world leading bio refinery built around a Swedish innovation and entrepreneurial achievement. Today, SunPine is an established billion-kronor industry that contributes to the green transformation of society and thus improves the world.
SunPine has a clear business idea linked to green forestry in Sweden. “SunPine’s process and employees seek to be world leaders in the production of renewable products based on sustainable forestry.”

As one of the world’s largest industries, the raw materials industry marks the beginning of the value-chain in virtually every other industry.
Given the scale of the industry and downstream effects of it, the raw materials industry can play a major role in reducing the environmental impact of several other industries.
Despite technological breakthroughs often gaining significant public attention, it normally takes approximately 20 to 30 years for new innovations to reach large-scale industrial commercialization. Can't wait that long?Read More
Throughout the world, countries, governments, and international organizations are struggling to adopt new laws and policies that adequately protect the planet and ensure that the necessary reductions in greenhouse gas emissions actually take place. This delay necessitates that global industry players take a central role in reducing global emissions figures. Our focus must be placed on companies willing to act.Read More
