P4G has expanded its Board of Directors to include more private sector representation and inspiration for green growth. Aiming for climate neutrality within ten years, Danfoss is used to linking climate ambitions and growth.
P4G has expanded the Board of Directors of the organization with three new members – all representing the private sector.
The private sector and investors play a key role in developing and implementing innovative and inclusive solutions to green growth. Board members’ leadership, expert inputs, vision and networks can help accelerate the progress of P4G partnerships.
President of Danfoss Heating, Lars Tveen, is among the three new members on the P4G board. Lars Tveen has broad management experience, and he has held several leading positions within the multinational company Danfoss based in Denmark.
“I look very much forward to take part in the important work done by P4G. The private sector plays a vital role in the green transition and can help and inspire to green innovation and growth. It is time to walk the talk. We have the solutions and possibilities – let’s now get started with the implementation of the many CO2 reduction initiatives,” says Lars Tveen.
Danfoss is particularly noticeable in their ambitions based on a climate strategy that is to be reached by 2030. The strategy includes the company becoming CO2-neutral, electrifying its car fleet, and reducing its energy intensity by 50 per cent while doubling the company’s energy productivity. The sector focus of Danfoss’ products and solutions is within clean energy (SDG 6), clean water (SDG 7), sustainable cities (SDG 11) and circular economy (SDG 12).
Joining the P4G Board of Directors along with Lars Tveen is Cherie Nursalim, Vice-Chair, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and Dennis Awori, Chairman, Toyota Kenya Limited.
