    Author : Michael Crona; Filip Linnér; [2023-02-27]
    Keywords : This report examines the financial profitability of a petroleum and biofuel company during their sustainability transformation.

This could propose a higher financial risk to the firm. The report also proposes and discuss the use of metrics for CO2- emission that are easier to understand than just the weight of the gas emitted.

The case study is based on an interview with a director at Preem to get an insight to the green investments. Data for financial- and environmental performance are collected from official reports published by Preem.;
