“Anna Borg has a broad and deep experience that makes her very well suited to be CEO at Vattenfall.

Under its CO2 roadmap, Vattenfall is aiming to become a climate neutral organization in its operations, suppliers and customers by phasing out fossil fuel based production and increasing its share of renewable energy generation. For solar, it plans to invest in large scale, decentralized solar and rooftop solar solutions for private customers.
In March 2020, the company entered into a partnership with Dutch land developer K3 to develop ground mounted and floating solar farms in the Netherlands (see Vattenfall To Develop Dutch Solar Farms With Land Developer).
