We are thrilled to invite you to the Nordic Conference “Decarbonizing the Transport”, organised by the Nordic Chambers of Commerce in Lithuania and the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Lithuania, taking place on the 5th of May, at 13:30 in Vilnius, physically and with possible remote participation. The event is powered by Neste, a global leader in renewable and circular solutions.

Date: 5 May, 2022 at 13:30-17:00 EET
Venue: Technopolis, V. Gerulaičio g. 10, Vilnius / Remotely

Lithuania and Nordic countries have had long-lasting cooperation in the field of energy and climate. Therefore, we hope that this half-a-day event focused on various challenges that the transport industry is facing in the light of decarbonization, will highlight some of the most important experiences and learnings that Lithuania may share with its neighbouring countries in the Nordic-Baltic region.

This event aims to initiate a dialogue between the decision-makers and the private sector and to pinpoint the most pivotal areas to be addressed in order to meet the ambitious climate targets set by the EU. Some of the key focus areas that will be discussed during the conference include: general insights into global climate-change-related challenges, transition to the green economy, different alternatives and solutions at hand in order to reach climate neutrality, as well as different governmental and business collaboration examples to battle climate change.
