Come and lead the way with us!

Becoming climate neutral is a top priority in Helsingborg, which has been recognised globally. In the spring of 2022, we were chosen as one of a hundred cities in the EU to lead the way in climate change. The goal is to become climate-neutral by 2030, far ahead of the rest of Sweden and the EU. It is a challenging goal, but we have already come a long way.

The Port of Helsingborg is investing heavily in its climate transition. The municipal energy company Öresundskraft is building a CCS plant to capture carbon dioxide. The municipal waste management company NSR has invested in one of Sweden’s first and largest biochar production facilities. And this is just the beginning! With the help of innovations and smart collaborations, we will get to the goal.

The Helsingborg Declaration – the most sustainable logistics hub in Europe

Helsingborg has already been recognised as one of Europe’s most innovative and climate-smart cities. We are taking the lead in the green transition and aiming for the most fast-moving and sustainable logistics hub in Europe.

The Helsingborg Declaration is supported by the city and more than 40 companies from the entire logistics chain. Together, we will find solutions to the climate crisis and become climate neutral by 2030.
