The Stockholm Environmental Programme
Detailed description of the Good Practice
The city council has adopted a document outlining the future, Vision 2030. According to the Vision, the Stockholm of 2030 is one of the most attractive cities of the world, and the cleanest and safest capital. The development is realized in sustainable ways: historical sites are being preserved and new housing is built using environmentally adapted and efficient materials and methods.
Technological advances and economic growth have laid the ground for an ecologically sustainable society. Stockholm is an energy efficient city, at the frontline of environmental technology, and on its way to becoming free of fossil fuels by 2050. The energy consumption has been reduced considerably.
The Vision has already been realized through several environmental programmes. The last programme was realized in years 2002-2006 and the fifth environmental programme is currently in progress. The state of the environment is also continuously monitored in Environmental Barometer.
Objectives of the Good Practice
The new environmental program for years 2008-2011 has six top priorities: traffic; chemical substances; energy; land and water; waste; and indoor environment. The overall goal is to reduce the city’s environmental impact.
