A fossil-free society – what role can the industrial symbiosis play?

Green economy gears in countryside

Climate change is a global problem. National, regional and global efforts are required in order to tackle this problem economic-, environment- and energy-effectively.

We sincerely invite you to join us at this event at Jernkontoret in Stockholm. You will meet friends from various industries, research institutes, universities, SMEs and authorities to listen to their views on how we can contribute to a fossil-free society, and your will also have chances to share your views and perspectives.
