Stockholm is known as one of the most sustainable cities in the world. International investors increasingly scout the city for the next rising star as many new companies thrive in the creative soil of talent and entrepreneurship. The reasons behind the success of the Stockholm sustainability and cleantech sector are often cited as: integrated and holistic city planning, close ties between public institutions and private enterprises in combination with stringent regulation. An example of the latter is Stockholm’s official target to become the smartest city in the world by 2040 and also to make the region CO2 free by 2040 (previously 2050). This drives a dynamic market for alternative fuels and renewable energy. Stockholm is where tech meets sustainability – and the city manages to grow its GDP and decrease emissions at the same time.
