Green Change Hbg is working for a greener Helsingborg. The initiative brings together actors who are working to improve quality of life in a sustainable future.
Green Change Hbg is working for a greener Helsingborg; by gathering actors who work for a sustainable society, by getting more people involved in the transition. Companies that have signed the city’s climate agreement talk about their initiatives, the city talks about the work that takes place in the municipal organization. We create change together, inspire each other, learn from each other. That’s what Green Change is all about.
Why do we need Green Change?
To succeed, we have to work together.
Helsingborg has been named Sweden’s best environmental municipality for several years in a row and is at the forefront of municipal sustainability work. We have an ambitious climate and energy plan, stating that net emissions of greenhouse gases in Helsingborg should be zero by 2035. But to reach this goal, we must work together. There is a lot that the City of Helsingborg can do as a municipality, but if we are to achieve the lofty goals in our climate and energy plan, we have to cooperate with the business community. Green Change Hbg and the city’s climate agreement are the engine for that collaboration.
A yearning for sustainable development
In Helsingborg, there are two local climate agreements, which says something about the level of ambition locally.
Helsingborg’s climate agreement was first, an initiative by citizens for citizens. Those who live or work in Helsingborg can declare their decision to reduce their climate impact by signing an agreement on the website klimatavtalet.se.
Green Change Hbg was launched in 2021 and is an agreement between the city and the local business community. It is voluntary to participate, but all companies that sign up undertake to make a number of commitments for increased sustainability. After the city expo H22, which will be held during the summer of 2022, we’ll begin developing Green Change Hbg into something even greater. We want to create an interactive community of climate actors – a platform for businesses, citizens and associations to create change together.
