Climate neutral Örebro 2030

Climate Neutral Örebro 2030 will create a platform for collaboration that leads to structural and cultural system innovations for climate change, in both new and existing neighborhoods. Örebro's strengths around carbon budget with three perspectives, systemic thinking for energy communities, citizen dialogues and digitalization are important pillars for achieving the goals. 

To accelerate work on issues such as consumption emissions, mobility measures and the climate impact of construction, it is important to find forms of cooperation, tools and processes that can capture and realize the necessary innovations and existing initiatives. 

The consortium consists of the municipality, academia, private and non-profit sectors, which together can create these conditions. The municipality's new governance model based on Agenda 2030, together with financial experience, political ambitions to create a Climate City Contract and existing networks within the city, means that the decided project funds can be implemented with successful results.
