Sweden’s capital city Stockholm has been working on climate change mitigation and adaption since the 1990s. The city is a real frontrunner, with well implemented climate action plans and pioneering policies to ensure it meets its ambitious environmental targets. By utilizing Stockholm’s favourable conditions, such as well developed gender equality, widespread IT infrastructure and high digital maturity, as well as the opportunities of digitalization and new technologies, the City of Stockholm will make life easier and better for everyone who lives, stays or works in the capital.
On April 3, 2017 the City Council adopted a strategy to further develop the smart city through coordination of the City's work on digitalization. The strategy has been developed together with the Stockholmers. The core of the strategy’s target vision shows the goal of the strategy and the City’s digitalization efforts – to provide the highest quality of life for the Stockholm inhabitants and the best entrepreneurial climate. These objectives are achieved by Stockholm, through innovative solutions, transparency and connectivity, as well as by becoming more economically, ecologically, democratically and socially sustainable.
