City goods – A win-win model for delivery

To improve accessibility in the city centre, a joint goods reception for smaller deliveries to downtown shops has been established.

The city, property owners, transport companies and stores have collaborated to simplify regulations, establish walking speed areas and intensify checks.

As a result, it is remarkably easier to distribute goods in the city while traffic intensity, noise and emissions have decreased. The participant response has been consistently positive and the model has attracted interest from other cities in Sweden and internationally.

Algae pilot

This Algae pilot is the first of its kind in Sweden. The algae convert unwanted substances to utilities. The goal is that algae cultivation will reduce our emissions of carbon dioxide and purify waste water to minimize over-fertilization of our waters and at the same time produce an energy-rich algae mass that is raw material for biodiesel (algae with high fatty acid content), animal feed (protein-rich algae) etc.

Climate Friendly Childbirths

Nitrous oxide is used during 80 per cent of childbirths. This gas is a green-house gas 310 times stronger than carbon-dioxide and one kilogram that is emitted into the atmosphere is equivalent to 1500 kilometres of driving a car. Region Skåne, the regional health care management organization of southern Sweden has installed equipment from the company Nordic Gas Cleaning for separating the nitrous oxide into oxygen and nitrogen at all of its five hospitals with birth clinics. This has not only reduced emissions by 99 per cent. It has also improved the work environment for midwives, who previously felt tired and nauseous after inhaling substantial amounts of air contaminated by nitrous oxide. Now both midwives and birth-giving mothers feel better due to this improvement.
