The Scientific Climate Council, a group of academic experts, will provide advisory support to the Swedish Export Credit Agency (EKN) and the Swedish Export Credit Corporation (SEK) to assist aligning the Swedish export finance system with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C goal, according to a SEK press release. The climate council is the first of its kind in the world and will focus on issues such as the role of natural gas for the energy transition in low- and middle-income countries.

One of the four scientists in the climate council is Måns Nilsson , Executive Director at SEI and Adjunct Professor in Environmental Strategies Research at the Royal Institute of Technology.
