The climate crisis represents a fundamental challenge. Cutting GHG emissions will not be sufficient to meet the 1,5 degree target.
SINTEF at COP
SINTEF will participate in this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference in Egypt. The organisation will be represented by Executive Vice President for Sustainability, Nils Røkke, and several other scientists from research areas such as CO2 capture and storage (CCS), offshore wind power, hydrogen, climate change adaptation, digitalisation and biodiversity.
The United Nations Climate Change Conference is an annual meeting place, where governmental authorities, politicians, industry representatives, research communities and non-governmental organization from 190 countries will gather together to negotiate ways they can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
“SINTEF has expertise and open research we want to share. During COP, we will present topics such as “CO2 DataShare”, which is an open portal that collects quality-assured data from CO2 storage projects. This is data that is useful and freely available to anyone who is interested in CO2 storage,” said Nils Røkke, Executive Vice President Sustainability in SINTEF.
This year’s conference, also known as “COP27”, will take place in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt. “SINTEF works with climate technology in collaboration with industry and academia around the world. The climate targets must be addressed across national borders, which is why SINTEF participating in this climate summit,” said CEO SINTEF Alexandra Bech Gjørv.
