Ragn-Sells brings climate solutions to COP26

The environmental company Ragn-Sells, together with sixteen other Swedish trailblazing companies, prominent experts, and dedicated politicians, are part of Business Sweden’s delegation of sustainability leaders to the UN COP26 climate summit, taking place in Glasgow in November.

- We are very proud to be a part of Business Sweden’s delegation and really look forward to share knowledge and insight on already available circular climate solutions, to inspire policymakers and business leaders to reuse raw materials from waste instead of extracting new, says Pär Larshans, Director of Sustainability at Ragn-Sells.

Today, half of the world’s emissions are caused by the production of common goods such as food, clothing, cars, etc. This is largely a consequence of raw materials being mined, used, and then thrown away, rather than being recovered and used over and over again. Ragn-Sells  has set a goal to be climate positive by 2030. To reach that goal, Ragn-Sells will continue to develop solutions that detoxify resources and bring them back into the production cycle again.

- We look forward to participating at COP26, together with partners like Gelsenwasser, Alfa Laval, E.ON, and Hitachi Zosen Inova, to inspire the policymakers of the world to make it easier and more profitable for businesses to use recycled materials, says Jan Svärd, CEO of Ragn-Sells innovation company EasyMining, who will also be participating in Glasgow.
