Oras Tynkkynen – Senior Advisor, Sitra

Sitra’s Senior Advisor Oras Tynkkynen will present the results from joint studies on how Nordic climate solutions can help in cutting emissions. Nordic Green to Scale, which is a part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ Initiative, provides analysis of attractive solutions that have already been successfully implemented and can be scaled up to other areas. The goal is to help countries and communities reach their emission commitments – and go beyond them. The talk will focus on latest results from Green to Scale and Nordic Energy Research, showcasing the potential of Nordic solutions for further climate action across the globe.
