    2. Convening the Nordic CEOs and Prime Ministers to accelerate action on the transition to a more sustainable economy.

    It all starts with "together".

    • Pursuing climate diplomacy in international forums to deliver solutions with impact on global emissions and to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement
    • Getting more done, faster, in light of the importance of making progress towards 2030
    • Being global leaders and advocates for climate action
    • Taking common steps to deliver towards gender equality
