After spending 20 years at Swedish utility Vattenhall, Anna Borg was appointed its chief executive in September 2020, becoming the first woman to run the energy company founded more than a century ago. Since her promotion from CFO to CEO, Borg has overseen the opening of Scandinavia’s largest offshore wind farm and a project to develop the world’s first carbon-free steel. Borg, who attended a White House summit on climate change in April, has moved up the company’s deadline for eliminating carbon emissions to 2040, from 2050. To that end, Vattenhall is building one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms, called Hollandse Kust Zuid, in the Dutch North Sea. Once fully commissioned in 2023, it will have 140 wind turbines and a total installed capacity of 1.5GW.
