During September 17-24 the climate issues takes center stage in New York through the United Nations-backed New York Climate Week. The week will host over 400 events and even more side activities, and serves as a key meeting place for those interested in advancing the climate agenda – including politicians, authorities, businesses, and organizations. One of the participants is Stockholm Exergi.
“We are currently in an exciting phase where the interest in carbon capture and negative emissions is growing increasingly evident,” says Charlotte Lindevall, Head of Strategic Communication at Stockholm Exergi.
“The contribution of negative emissions to the climate is a global matter, and in New York, we will meet international customers who see negative emissions as an opportunity to meet their net-zero goals. We will also meet decision-makers and various other stakeholders who will be crucial in the creation of an international voluntary market for negative emissions,” says Erik Rylander, Commercial Director of CDR (Carbon Dioxide Removals).
For us as a company, the international context for negative emissions is very important. The voluntary market for trading negative emissions will be global, thus New York Climate Week provides an excellent setting to bring light to that development. Furthermore, there is a substantial interest in negative emissions among American companies. We aim to establish new business relationships with potential customers interested in purchasing negative emissions from Stockholm Exergi.
Moreover, we will actively put forward and present our perspective on needed requirements for sustainable negative emissions from bio-CCS, commonly referred to as “the methodology”.
We look forward to a week where we can contribute to an increasing interest in negative emissions, expand our international network, and create opportunities for new collaborations,” adds Charlotte Lindevall.
Stockholm Exergi’s participation in the New York Climate Week
Stockholm Exergi will, among other things, participate in the Nasdaq Annual NY Climate Week Conference, Business Sweden’s Road to COP28 event, as well as the Swedish Energy Agency’s and The Building Energy Exchange’s (BE-Ex) seminar focused on district heating as a platform for building a robust system. Together with the British company Drax, we will also participate in a seminar at IETA (International Emissions Trading Association) about the need for a high-integrity method for carbon capture. Moreover,, Stockholm Exergi will engage in constructive meetings with various on-site decision-makers and businesses.
