In June 2020, we published St1 Outlook, which examines the bigger picture on climate change and global energy challenges and considers how we can reverse the situation.
St1 Outlook was launched in an online webinar that was joined by stakeholders from 30 countries. Discussing the most urgent energy challenges was an international panel: Anders Borg, Sweden’s former Minister of Finance; Lenita Toivakka, Head of the UN Global Compact in Finland; Anne Marit Post-Melbye, industry manager at the ZERO climate foundation in Norway; Sean Kidney, co-founder and CEO of the Climate Bonds Initiative; Kimmo Tiilikainen, State Secretary to Finland’s Minister of Economic Affairs; Svante Axelsson, national coordinator for Fossil-free Sweden; and Mika Anttonen, Chairman of the Board at St1. The event was hosted by Timo Huhtisaari, St1’s Director of Sustainability and Future Business.
In Outlook, we demonstrate the complexity of the climate change crisis, showing that there is no single solution that will solve the problem. Nevertheless, energy is at the core of the matter. St1 Outlook examines how climate change must be mitigated a little at a time, in conjunction with the continuation of our modern life on this planet.
Most of the data is acquired from respected sources like the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and is used with the intention of delivering the core messages. Any actions taken should be derived from science and research-based knowledge, and must focus on delivering global solutions.
In order to deliver meaningful solutions with a positive impact, the ideas and solutions presented in Outlook focus on total life cycle emissions. Narrowing the scope would have resulted in a sub-optimization of the problem.
We invite you to join us in solving global energy challenges!
