In an open letter, companies urge an increase of climate measures in the EU

18 Nordic region companies have written a joint open letter to all Energy Ministers in the EU, urging them to support increased measures to prevent a future climate crisis. The background to the letter is a preliminary report from the IPCC that shows that global warming will very probably exceed the critical limit of 1.5 degrees.

The letter has been issued in connection with “The Clean Energy Ministerial” commencing this week. This meeting will gather the world’s key economies in Copenhagen and Malmö to discuss how the global transition to clean energy could be speeded up. The EU's 2030 targets and the way of achieving these will form important parts of these discussions.
