Journey towards a sustainable future

Together with other societal actors and leading voices from the business sector, politics, and academia, we gather in Almedalen to discuss the way forward for the ongoing transition. What challenges remain, and what do we need to solve to enable the journey towards a sustainable future?

Norra Scen – arena for green transition

In collaboration with Region Norrbotten and Luleå University of Technology, we set up Norra Scen, just north of the main Almedalen stage. The arena was established for the first time last year, with well-attended seminars and appreciated conversations.

Join us on the journey!

Register below to stay up to date with our events and speakers in Almedalen.

This is the most strategic conversation on this topic that I have ever experienced in the context of Almedalen.

LKAB in Almedalen 2023

In this year's program, LKAB focuses heavily on energy and electrification linked to the necessary transition. We also participate in many discussions on critical raw materials and increased self-sufficiency, infrastructure, permit processes, and societal development.

LKAB organizes three seminars/conversations, including a roundtable discussion at Norra Scen on June 29. Moderated by Karin Hübinette. You’ll find us at Fiskargränd 5. Welcome!

Our seminars

Energy need and future energy supply in light of the industrial transition

Electrification and industrial transformation are key factors in addressing the climate challenge. What do the plans for LKAB’s production of carbon-free iron ore using hydrogen actually look like? How does the transition affect the energy system and electricity market? And what paths are available when it comes to solving the future energy puzzle?

Participants: Per Eckemark (Svenska kraftnät), Åsa Pettersson (Energiföretagen), Robert Andrén (Energimyndigheten), Lina Bertling Tjernberg (KTH Royal Institute of Technology), Stefan Savonen (LKAB).

Climate, competitiveness, and energy – how can the transition be effective for Sweden?

The iron and steel industry accounts for approximately 7 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, and there is an increasingly intense race to gain an advantage in the journey towards sustainable production with a focus on electrification. How can we achieve this with related electricity needs, and what opportunities and challenges exist for Sweden in creating the world’s first fossil-free value chain for iron and steel production? How do we combine climate benefits with strengthened competitiveness, and how can conflicting interests be resolved?

Participants: Jan Moström (LKAB), Daniel Liljeberg (Government Offices of Sweden), Mikael Damberg (Socialdemokraterna), Märta Stenevi (Miljöpartiet), Christina Båge-Friborg (SSAB), Johan Kuylenstierna (Formas), Niklas Wahlberg (Volvo), Svante Axelsson (Fossil Free Sweden).

Roundtable: How do we provide energy for the transition?

Within 20 years, a significant portion of the basic industry will have zero carbon dioxide emissions. For the transition to succeed, a comprehensive electrification of society is required, and Sweden needs to double its production of fossil-free electricity during this period. Sweden currently has a unique energy mix and excellent opportunities to rapidly increase fossil-free electricity production. How do we take advantage of the opportunities created by the transition while increasing the pace and managing conflicts when different interests need to be considered? Around the tables, politicians, researchers, and specialists will be joined by business leaders and directors-general to contribute to dialogue and necessary development.

Meet us in Almedalen
