According to the city's preliminary forecast sees Stockholm out to meet its emissions target for 2020 of 2.2 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) per person by 2018. To greenhouse gas emissions counts the heat, electricity and gas, and transport.
" From 1990 we have a total of reduced emissions by 40 per cent, especially when it comes to heating and electricity, but the traffic stands still. We are going in the right direction, but we should go faster, " says Catherine Luhr.
in the last five years assumed to be due to increased population and half on the mitigation measures. As Stockholm is growing and more people live in less space and using the existing public transport energy can be used more effectively.
Värmeutsläppen has halved and elutsläppen has decreased by a third. In particular, to fossil fuels decreased in both the heating and the nordic electricity production.
– The new biofuel boiler in Värtaverket make a big difference for district heating. I am pleased that the Stockholm Exergy to shut down one of kolpannorna already this year instead of 2022. It will make a difference. We also have about 1,500 oil-fired boilers that heats the house which should be gone by 2025. So we have several measures on the roll bar, " she says.
kommunlistan of the highest proportion of green cars, both for passenger cars and light trucks with 94 percent and 80 percent, according to a new miljöfordonsrapport from Bisnode.
But transportation is still the big blot Stockholm koldioxidprotokoll. Emissions from transport have hardly fallen in 30 years and represent one tonne of the carbon footprint per person. Road transport accounts for 80 per cent emissions from transport and does not reduce in spite of cleaner fuels as traffic increases. Miljöborgarrådet mean that it requires both legislative changes and innovation.
– It is a big problem that it is not happening in the transport sector. We must ask if faster. We need, among other elbilspooler and better charging infrastructure, " says Catherine Luhr.
often the criticism that it does not include emissions outside the city limits. Flygutsläppen count only 950 metres above the Bromma airport and båttrafikens emissions only in ports within Stockholm's geographical boundary. Consumption are also not included in the 2.2 ton of the target. According to the environmental protection agency estimates, says the swede for around ten tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per person per year.
Stockholm city shall fall to calculate the city's carbon budget. It should show how much CO2e each Locals may drop out in order to cope Parisavtalets global climate targets. To reach 1.5 gradersmålet it is estimated that the global average carbon emission per person must down to under a tonne by 2050.
" I dare not guess where we land. We agree on a new climate change strategy with targets to be completed in the autumn. On the other hand, Stockholm to be completely fossil fuel-free 2040, and the city's own operations completely emission-free by 2030, " says Katarina Luhr.
