Stockholm has come far in its work for environment and climate, and the City´s ambition is to be an international role model in this important area. Therefore, the City´s own operations are aiming to be at the forefront, to lead the way to a climate smart and sustainable city.
The City´s ambitions for the future are high. We aim to be world-leading in realizing the goals of the Paris-agreement, and in working with the UN global goals for sustainable development, the 2030 Agenda. Our goals are high in the fields of
- air quality
- noise pollution
- a non-toxic environment.
We shall be a fossil free Stockholm without greenhouse gas emissions.
As a recognition for a job well done, the City of Stockholm was, in 2010, the first city to receive the European Green Capital Award. The European Union awarded The City of Stockholm for its successful long term work for the environment and climate.
