Green Gothenburg

The City of Gothenburg has adopted 12 environmental objectives that will help us to create a good living environment both now and in the future. The environmental objectives show the state we want to achieve and form the basis of local environmental efforts. The environmental objectives, which in the majority of cases will be achieved by 2020, present the ecological dimension of the sustainable development of Gothenburg.

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.
