May 25, 2023 (press release) –

The collaboration between Elkem and Zero aims to drive advancements towards reduced carbon emissions and improved climate solutions, by leveraging the respective strengths and expertise of both organisations.

Elkem is already more than 80% powered by renewable energy across its global operations and holds a CDP rating of A- on climate. The company aims at net zero fossil emissions by 2050 through a climate strategy focused on further reducing fossil CO2 emissions, growing its supplies of advanced materials to the green transition, and enabling more circular economies.

Elkem is a key supplier to the green transition, producing silicones, silicon products and carbon solutions, which are critical materials to enable the electric vehicles, solar panels and wind turbines, as well as computers and mobile phones, that the world depends on.

"We are pleased to enter into this partnership with Zero," said Helge Aasen, CEO of Elkem. "Elkem aims to be part of the solution to combat climate change – and to be one of the winners in the green transition. By combining our expertise and resources, we can accelerate the development and adoption of innovative solutions that contribute reducing our emissions towards net zero while further growing our supplies to the transition."

Under the partnership with Elkem, Zero will contribute its knowledge within climate change and policy. The environmental foundation Zero is an independent, not-for-profit organization that promotes practical solutions to the climate crisis. Zero is politically independent, has an analytical and knowledge-based approach, and gains knowledge through continuous cooperation with external actors across business sectors, research, policy and organisational networks. Zero’s goal is to be a driver of zero emission solutions.

“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Elkem. In order to achieve our climate goals, it is crucial for companies like Elkem to take the lead in developing technology and solutions that reduce emissions. There is an urgent need to implement measures that contribute to realizing emissions reductions in Norway, while also strengthening the competitiveness of the future green industry,” said Sigrun Gjerløw Aasland, managing director of Zero.
