From words to action

- Methodology for effective implementation of climate investment plans

Climate investment plans are a new but promising tool for accelerating the climate transition. Developing the implementation requires an understanding of financial management and the everyday processes of economists, as well as developed investment models that have the ability to include the benefits of the climate transition in a longer perspective.

Karlstad Municipality and companies in the city have come a long way in climate work, not least through the Climate Neutral Cities 2030 initiative. The work on climate investment plans coincides with the development of a new governance model, which creates a window of opportunity to build the plan into governance processes.

The feasibility study will develop training for a common knowledge base in both climate and financial management, develop implementation methodology through service design and develop support tools.

The initiative is part of the Viable Cities call #13.
