Helsingborg's ambition is to offer its residents a high quality of life within the limits of the planet. The City of Helsingborg has an ambitious climate and energy plan with the goal of achieving zero emissions for the municipality's area by 2035. As part of this, a local Paris Agreement, the Climate Agreement in Helsingborg, was launched in spring 2021. The follow-up of the climate and energy plan found that the city is making progress, but the work is moving too slowly if we are to reach our goals on time.
With this initiative, the city wants, based on ongoing climate work, to intensify the transition to climate neutrality through Climate City Contract 2030 and the climate investment plan together with business, associations and residents.
