More about the project

Växjö aims to become climate-neutral by 2030. This process will involve many decisions and changes and require cooperation and dialogue with research, residents and other stakeholders.

Linnaeus University will work with Växjö municipality to develop an action plan and methods for the transition to low climate impact. This project will work with a broad picture of a climate-neutral Växjö, but it will also focus deeper in two areas: construction and transport.

In the project, digital tools will be created and tested with a focus on improving insight into existing emissions and allowing planning and comparing different solutions and scenarios needed to reach climate neutrality in 2030.
