Climate Neutral Borlänge 2030 aims to create forms of collaboration, new processes and methods to enable the transformative changes required to succeed in the rapid climate transition. The initiative revolves around an innovation team, a broad collaboration platform, platforms for communication and citizen engagement, and a portfolio of initiatives for climate neutrality. Together, this will strengthen the ability of Borlänge, a relatively small town with heavy industry in a predominantly rural county, to become a pioneer nationally and in Europe.
