  • knowledge society

In a ceremony held on 5 November during EUROCITIES 2015 Copenhagen/Malmo, Anneli Hulthén, mayor and chairman of the Gothenburg City Executive, signed our Green Digital Charter (GDC) on behalf of her city.

Gothenburg becomes the 49th city to sign the charter, demonstrating the city’s long standing commitment to sustainability.  

Gothenburg is a sustainable and smart city, with a fully integrated approach to managing city energy flows. The city is well on its way to becoming a low carbon economy. Gothenburg is aiming to become a leader in environmental and urban development and one of the world’s most progressive cities in terms of addressing climate and environmental problems. The Green Digital Charter is one of the city's many efforts to reduce carbon emission in line with its ambitious Climate Programme and Digital Development Programme.

Gothenburg plans to continue to exchange knowledge and experiences with other GDC signatory cities and EUROCITIES members.
