SINTEF at COP26


- Solving the climate crisis will require extensive international collaboration between businesses, governments and the scientific community. This is why SINTEF will increase its participation in the UN Climate Change Conference this year, says SINTEF CEO Alexandra Bech Gjørv.

The United Nations are organising the Glasgow climate summit in November, with 190 countries negotiating the implementation of the Paris Agreement. The summit, also known as COP26, is a leading forum for authorities, politicians, industry, the scientific community and diverse interest groups.

SINTEF has participated in the UN Climate summits since 2009. For COP26 SINTEF is increasing its participation and presence by joining the Norway pavilion, in collaboration with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bellona, Aker Horizons and other Norwegian actors. SINTEF will be participating in several events and meetings during the summit.
