Learning by doing – Sustainable City Development in Stockholm

27/05/2011 / Kaj

Stockholm Royal Seaport, Norra Djurgårdsstaden is the second Sustainable City model after Hammarby Sjöstad. Learning from experience the new Stockholm Royal Seaport is an ambitious green building project. It will transform a former industrial zone into a thriving residential area with zero fossil fuel emissions by 2030. Just a stone’s throw from the heart of the Swedish capital, Stockholm Royal Seaport is a new green district in the making. The former brownfield site and busy port – served daily by ferries and cruise ships – is the largest sustainable redevelopment projects currently underway in Stockholm.

When completed in 2030, Stockholm Royal Seaport will have 10,000 new homes and 30,000 additional work spaces in an environment that unites modern architecture with climate-smart and efficient infrastructure. Read more

Stockholm Royal Seaport is one of 18 projects supported by the Clinton Climate Initiative. Mayors in Cities in the C40 group are taken a leading role in the fight against Climate Change where nations fail.

The Mayors fourth biennial C40 Summit will take place in Sao Paulo from May 31 to June 2, bringing together Mayors from leading cities around the world.
