Appointment of Mr Carlos Lange, Fortescue Future Industries President Europe

31 March 2023

Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) is resolutely committed to helping Europe achieve more secure energy supplies by developing and deploying green technology that helps countries rapidly achieve real zero.

To date, Fortescue has partnered with leading European organisations such as Deutsche Bahn, Covestro and EON to build momentum across green hydrogen markets. Through our acquisition of WAE Technologies, Fortescue is also securing access to next-generation technologies with the potential to significantly lower industrial emissions and create new jobs.

As we continue to focus on our goal of bringing five green energy projects to final investment decision by the end of the year, we warmly welcome the appointment of Mr Carlos Lange as FFI President for Europe.

Mr Lange will build on our work to date and focus on how we can support a rapid and sustainable uptake of green energy across Europe.

Quotes attributable to FFI President, Europe:

“I am delighted to join Fortescue at this critical moment for the global energy transition. Green hydrogen offers Europe a pragmatic alternative to unreliable and unsustainable fossil fuels. We are a resolute energy security and climate action partner for Europe. I look forward to working with partners across the EU and more broadly to unlock the benefits of a rapid shift to zero-carbon technology.’

Mr Lange joins Fortescue with over 25+ years international and executive leadership and experience in the energy, renewable fuels, oil and gas, and engineering procurement and construction (EPC) companies.
