Normative kick-started its COP27 presence with the webinar above, in which leaders from government and industry explained how enterprises can accurately measure their greenhouse gas emissions.

COP27 event recordings

Nov 6, 2022 – Nov 18, 2022

Normative was part of the Business Sweden delegation at COP27 alongside Spotify, IKEA, and Volvo, among other Swedish companies.

At COP27, we highlighted the importance of accurate emissions measurements and standardized reporting frameworks. Accurate measurements empower the reductions needed to reach net zero, and standardized frameworks enable stakeholders to measure progress toward that target.

To the right, you can watch recordings of Normative’s speaking engagements at the Swedish Pavilion.

In this session: the key obstacles and challenges preventing businesses from reaching net zero, and the solutions to overcoming them.

Now more than ever, businesses are committing to net zero targets and demonstrating the desire to do the right thing in terms of corporate responsibility – yet global emissions are rising. This inconsistency is due to a number of factors, including a lack of resourcing, limited understanding, and, crucially, an accuracy gap between corporate sustainability strategies and the reporting of their outcomes.

In this session, the panel will discuss how enterprises can successfully reach net zero and the required building blocks to do so.

Normative CEO Kristian Rönn joins panelists from Alfa Laval, IKEA, and Volvo to discuss the difficulties faced by businesses who attempt to measure their scope 3 emissions – and the benefits experienced by the businesses that manage it.

Businesses are experiencing increasing demands – and incentives – to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions.

Many businesses are already mandated by law to report their climate impact, and many more will be in the near future, as reporting legislation expands in scope.

However, even businesses that are not legally mandated to disclose emissions still choose to do so. These disclosures enable businesses to meet the requirements of stakeholders like investors, or to validate their sustainability efforts to consumers.

Despite the growing importance of emissions reporting, businesses currently report in a myriad of different formats, making it difficult to compare climate performance across businesses. When coupled with the lack of transparency in ESG and sustainability metrics, this can allow companies to appear committed to net zero without making meaningful progress towards that goal – eroding trust in the concept of net zero as a whole and stalling progress toward global climate targets.

In this panel, representatives from businesses and institutions discussed how a single, easy-to-use score can help businesses measure their climate impact in a standardized, transparent, and comparable way.

Join Nasdaq, the Swedish Energy Agency, Stockholm Exergi and Minesto for a discussion on how private and public funding can support the growth journey for green tech companies.

As an exchange listed company previously supported by the Swedish Energy Agency, Minesto has made the journey from small startup to a global leader within marine energy.

Moderated by Nasdaq, Minesto and the Swedish Energy Agency share their perspective on topics such as conditions for capital raising in the private and public space, the step from local to global and what Swedish and global governments, NGOs and private organisations can do to improve further improve the green tech ecosystem. Minesto also joins the discussion to share their thoughts on how to get more innovative green tech companies to receive investments by providing them with the right type of data.

More businesses than ever are committing to net zero – yet global emissions continue to increase. How can this be so?

One key factor is the accuracy gap: the delta between the emissions organisations think they are producing and the emissions they are actually producing.

When businesses don’t calculate their full emissions, the resulting blind spots lead to inadequate reduction measures, underreported emissions, and insufficient climate targets. This not only prevents businesses from effectively fighting climate change, but also blocks business opportunities and endangers brand equity.

In short, flawed calculations lead to flawed results – which can expose businesses to severe consequences.

This panel explains how businesses can close the accuracy gap – and prevent its most damaging consequences – using comprehensive, accurate carbon accounting.

Stockholm Exergi aims to be the first producer in the world with sustainable bio-ccs and Europe’s first large scale provider/supplier of negative emissions. In order to create a market for trade of negative emissions , a global regulatory framework needs to be established. According to IPCC, negative emissions are crucial to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees and to reach the climate goals.

This event gathered relevant stakeholders to discuss a market framework for negative emissions and the possibilities and challenges, and to answer questions like:

How do we maximize private funding and minimize state funding to optimize negative emissions?

How do we ensure the capture process is cost-efficient?

In order to mitigate the worst effects of climate change we need to reach 1.5 degrees – this is non-negotiable. The first key milestone is the halving of emissions by 2030.

Enterprises play a major role in reducing emissions throughout their value chains. This session features Ericsson, Normative, BT Group and Polestar – four leading companies who are committed and taking across the 4 Climate Pillars of the 1.5°C Business Playbook.

The twin crises of nature’s extinction and climate change are inextricably linked. While the destruction of nature has the potential to exacerbate climate change, the link between nature and climate change also presents opportunities. Nature-based solutions harness the power of nature to combat climate change – ensuring biodiversity, revitalising forests and supporting other natural environments.
