Roadmap to fossil freedom
Large scale change is happening.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time – our world urgently needs to change and find alternative ways of powering and heating.
To contribute to the solution and become fossil free within one generation, Vattenfall needs to reduce its CO2 emissions and thereby reduce its carbon footprint throughout the entire value chain.
The goal is climate neutrality for our own operations, our suppliers and our customers. To make it happen, we are working determinedly together with customers, partners, authorities, and cities.
We call this our CO2 roadmap.
Our journey to fossil freedom
Lignite and hard coal do not longer fit in to our strategy. By divesting our lignite operations, we have reduced our annual CO2 emissions from 84 million tonnes to 23 million tonnes.

Electrification as an enabler
By bringing fossil free electricity to new sectors and contexts, we can contribute to economic growth and social progress whilst minimizing climate impact.
We are transforming our production portfolio and helping our customers power their lives in climate smarter ways.
