Carina Håkansson

Director General

"Sweden is going to be one of the world's first fossil-free welfare states. This requires a shift to an economy based on recycling instead of consumption. Products based on fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, must be replaced with products made from renewable raw materials, such as forests."

She is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of  Engineering Sciences and is part of the steering committee for "Innovation in the forest industry." Carina is happy to discuss bioeconomy and how the forest industry contributes to meeting national and international climate goals.
