Nordic Green Conference 2020 - Virtual Live Stream

Organised by Innovation Norway, Embassy of Sweden, Embassy of Finland, Embassy of Denmark, Promote Iceland, Nordic Innovation House and supported by Nordic Innovation.


As each of the countries in South-East Asia is addressing similar national challenges related to waste/resource management and decarbonization, the focus on regional cooperation is getting more relevant.


The Nordic region has developed and deployed sustainability solutions and policies for decades. With experience in cross-border energy collaboration, waste handling and circular economy, the Nordic countries also work together to improve energy security and provide functioning energy and resource regulatory frameworks.


Join us at the Nordic Green Conference to learn how Nordic experiences in regional energy collaboration can support addressing challenges in South East Asia through an exchange of ideas and concepts, technologies and policies by companies, research communities and government.
