Nordic Net Zero: The Green Business Opportunity

 

Future Economic Growth Demands that Leaders Embark on the Journey to Nordic Net Zero

The business case is clear: with the potential to create over 350,000 jobs, Nordic net zero is the largest opportunity individual businesses and the economy have seen for decades. It will require the Nordics to decarbonize smartly and invest approximately €860 billion, but immediate action puts the economic benefits within reach.

To succeed, governments and companies must collaborate closely to find sustainable solutions, and secure the necessary incentives and policies.

Reaching Nordic net zero will unlock a much greater CO2 abatement and enable the Nordics to boost their exports and position themselves as global leaders in sustainability.

Smart Decarbonization Makes Nordic Net Zero Achievable and Unlocks Growth

The BCG report offers an affordable and achievable pathway to reach Nordic net zero that jointly optimizes for local abatement and global export potential where Nordic companies have a competitive advantage–we call it ‘smart decarbonization’.

Smart Decarbonization enables countries and companies to pursue and prioritize the right opportunities against the time and investment required to implement them; their local abatement potential; and the potential to expand Nordic competitive advantages to drive emissions reductions, and therefore exports, abroad.
