Press release from H2 Green Steel

H2 Green Steel and Nobel Prize Outreach have partnered up to inspire, spread knowledge and innovate around scientific creativity, sustainability and digitalization. 

H2 Green Steel was launched in 2021 with a clear purpose to accelerate the decarbonization of hard-to-abate industries. Steel is the start and one of the heaviest polluting industries today. In support of its purpose, and to drive sustainable change and innovation quickly, H2 Green Steel is partnering with Nobel Prize Outreach, one of the most renowned platforms globally in terms of putting the spotlight on science and innovation.

“At H2 Green Steel we are curious, creative and always anchored in science. We will grow internationally, but we are rooted in Sweden. We have this in common with what Nobel stands for and Nobel Prize Outreach will be a strong platform for us to leverage on our growth journey,” says Henrik Henriksson, CEO, H2 Green Steel.

Nobel Prize Outreach engages millions of people around the world through inspirational events, digital media, special exhibitions and activities related to the legacy of Alfred Nobel and the achievements of the Nobel Prize laureates. To achieve this, Nobel Prize Outreach works with a limited number of selected long-term corporate partners – Nobel International Partners.

“As an inventor, entrepreneur, scientist and industrialist, Alfred Nobel was a pioneer of his time who was not afraid of setting high goals and working with the right people to achieve them. Partnering with a startup like H2 Green Steel is so true to this mindset. Our collaboration acknowledges the importance of curious minds in finding innovative solutions for a more resource-efficient future,” says Laura Sprechmann, CEO of Nobel Prize Outreach.
