How do we reduce our carbon footprint and create a more circular economy?

Our goal is for Helsingborg to be climate neutral within 15 years, which will require a 33% reduction in emissions and a 15% reduction in hydrocarbon use.

Most people live in cities, and cities are responsible for 75% of the global energy use, 75% of global emissions and 50% of global waste production.

How do we stimulate innovations that lead to more circular and climate-smart communities? How do we reach the levels of awareness, goodwill and behavioural changes required for us to meet the demands of the Paris Agreement and the goals set by the City of Helsingborg and the EU?
