12 February at 13:00 – climate interview sessions – meet skier Sara Hector

Electric vehicles – fossil free transportation

During the World Championships, Vattenfall will host short climate interview sessions at the pavilion in the Sponsor Village lead by Climate Coach Lars Ejeklint and former skier Jens Byggmark.

We will meet alpine skier Sara Hector, and she will talk about her personal climate challenges. Did you know that Sara is riding an electric scooter? One of the things we will discuss with her is how electricity can contribute to fossil free transportation, and talk about pros and cons with electric vehicles. We will also follow up on Sara's challenge to reduce her emissions – how is it going?

Vattenfall's Head of Sustainability, Annika Ramsköld, will also join the debate.

Everybody is welcome in the pavilion!

Climate neutral events – on the road to fossil free living

During the World Championships, Vattenfall will host short climate interview sessions at the pavilion in the Sponsor Village lead by Climate Coach Lars Ejeklint and former skier Jens Byggmark.

We will meet alpine skiers Matts Olsson and Frida Hansdotter, and they will talk about their personal climate challenges. We will ask Matts and Frida if it's possible to be climate smart and deliver top results? How has it been to be a part of the Klimatlandslaget (climate national team challenge in Sweden), how is it effecting them and what have they learned? Do they feel any difference that this year's World Championships is climate neutral?

Riikka Rakic, Head of Sustainability at the World Championships organisation Åre 2019 and Vattenfall's Head of Sustainability, Annika Ramsköld, will also join the debate. With them we will also try to explain what it means to be climate neutral.

Everybody is welcome in the pavilion!

Electric cars and charging infrastructure

During the World Championships, Vattenfall will host short climate interview sessions at the pavilion in the Sponsor Village lead by Climate Coach Lars Ejeklint and former skier Jens Byggmark.

We will meet alpine skiers Mattias Hargin and André Myhrer, and they will talk about their personal climate challenges. We will also welcome Irene Bernald from Audi, Patrik Lihr from Europcar and Tomas Björnsson from Vattenfall to the debate.

It seems that all car manufacturers agree that the future is electric. More than half of the manufacturers selling cars in Sweden say that they will convert completely to electrical vehicles within the near future. We will discuss the biggest challenges when it comes to providing all these vehicles with electricity. And we want to know the demand for electric and plug-in hybrid cars, both among companies and private persons?

Everybody is welcome in the pavilion!
