NetZero 2050 – The greatest investment challenge

Yngve Slyngstad Snic 2022

The net-zero challenge is urgent and large and affects all sectors, says Mr. Yngve Slyngstad. He joined SNIC 2022 as a keynote speaker and panelist at Conrad Centennial on 18 November.

The title of his speech was Net Zero, The greatest investment challenge. However, it could have been called The greatest innovation challenge or The greatest maritime challenge.

Currently, Mr. Slyngstad is the Managing Partner of Industry Capital Partners (ICP), which he established with the Norwegian industrial investment company Aker ASA.

ICP’s mission is to invest in the full breadth and depth of the climate transition. This includes all aspects, from seed funding of low-carbon technologies to renewable infrastructure projects.
