Update on sustainability targets within supply chains and manufacturing


In January, we ran a webinar on energy efficient supply chains and manufacturing. Now it’s time for an update on how  Swedish companies can meet sustainability targets in China and navigate a changing cost and regulatory environment. What effect has COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine has on the energy sector in Asia?

  • What are the key trends in China´s energy sector and what does it mean for manufacturing companies?
  • How is China working with implementation towards Carbon peak and Carbon neutrality?
  • How will the upcoming European demands on carbon-transparency and carbon border tax impact companies with supply chain in China?
  • What new opportunities are there for Swedish companies to compete with energy efficient solutions?
  • What are companies doing already now to take the right supply chain decisions and reduce emissions in their operations in China?
  • What are the key technical and implementation success factors to reduce energy usage in China?
  • What should Swedish manufacturing companies focus on 2022 to be ready for higher energy prices, more transparency and more ambitious carbon reduction targets?
  • Are there any local investment partners to team up with?

This webinar is for you who work in a company that has manufacturing in China, suppliers in China or work with energy and industrial solutions and want to learn more.
