Environmental Program for the City of Gothenburg
A great deal of environmentally beneficial work is taking place in Gothenburg although it is evident that more powerful initiatives are required if we are to achieve our environmental objectives. Our ambition is to contribute to a sustainable society and not pass on environmental problems to future generations. To achieve this, we have produced the first Environmental Program for the City of Gothenburg, a common starting point for the future.
The Environmental Program includes an action plan, complete with actions that all City of Gothenburg administrations and companies are now set to implement in order to successfully realize the 12 environmental objectives.
In-depth action plans
We have produced in-depth action plans for three environmental objectives – Reduced climate impact, Non-toxic environment and Good noise environment. The Chemicals Action Plan, the strategic Climate Program and the Noise Action Plan are designed to complement the Environmental Program and the figure above shows how they relate to each other. We have also commenced work on establishing a Nature Conservation Strategy.
On the website “Green Gothenburg” you get a living example of sustainable urban development in the Gothenburg region, both by industries and by the city. Green Gothenburg offers expertise, study visits, inspiration and useful business contacts.
