Lighthouse city: Stockholm

A website about the GrowSmarter project is also available in Swedish on the Stockholm City Council site, click here

Background

Sweden’s capital city Stockholm has been working on climate change mitigation and adaption since the 1990s. The city is a real frontrunner, with well implemented climate action plans and pioneering policies to ensure it meets its ambitious environmental targets. The carbon dioxide emissions have been cut by 25% per citizen since 1990.

Stockholm is growing rapidly and sometimes faces challenges of both keeping and developing its unique city character. A key priority is to ensure that Stockholm remains a sustainable city, while offering an attractive and inspiring living and working environment.The climate action group coordinates implementation and monitors the results of all climate actions undertaken in the city.  Their long term aim is to become completely fossil-fuel free by 2040, with the immediate objective of reducing CO2eq to 3 tonnes per citizen by 2015.

 

Which smart solutions are we using?

Demonstration of the 12 smart solutions will take place in Årsta, a fast-growing district in the South of Stockholm. 

How are we doing?

Mika Hakosalo will be leading the implementation of the 12 solutions in Årsta, and will be providing you with updates from the Stockholm site.
