Copenhagen Economics participates in World Cleanup Day 2020

This Saturday, 19 September, was the annual and international World Cleanup Day. World Cleanup Day is a civic movement, uniting 180 countries and millions of volunteers, individuals, and organisations across the world to clean up the planet. In one day.

We wish to partake in this important matter of keeping our environment and nature clean. Therefore, some of our colleagues met up to collect waste near our Copenhagen office. Together, they collected 7 waste bags in only 2 hours.

Let's make a difference - together!

New study: Three policy initiatives to help in the decarbonisation of the Nordics

In our recent study on decarbonisation of the Nordics, we assess to which extent electrification of the wider economy, e-fuels, CCS and integration of the Nordic power markets, can provide the necessary emission reductions for reaching the Nordic countries’ national decarbonisation targets. Moreover, we propose a set of political initiatives to help deliver on these targets.

The proposed policy initiatives have three main components:

  • Establish a credible carbon pricing framework
  • Targeted support for promising technologies
  • Integration of power markets and better regulation models for TSOs/DSOs

Sigurd Næss-Schmidt speaks at Fortum's webinar on decarbonisation of the Nordics

The Nordic countries have set very ambitious climate targets, but they will not be reached with the current measures. A lot of decisions will be made this decade on how to decarbonise the Nordic economies – especially the sectors which are difficult to electrify.

Back in February, we were asked by Fortum to conduct a study about decarbonisation of the Nordics.

On Thursday, 17 September, our Partner Sigurd Næss-Schmidt will present the key findings at Fortum Energy Review’s webinar. He will be joined by commentators from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark who will share their views about the findings.

After the webinar, an on-demand recording will be available to all who have registered.
