Deputy Mayor – Malmo, Sweden

Malmo is taking the lead on working with climate action. The city has worked with sustainability and climate issues for decades. · Collaboration is key. Malmö is working with Copenhagen and region to share and learn. · The most significant challenge for Malmö related to climate is emissions from transport and energy. Waste to energy is used by Malmö to heat homes and provide electricity. Carbon capture and storage is on the agenda, and geothermal energy is being explored as an alternative to burning waste.… · Freiburg in Germany is an inspiration – it has a massive solar park and there are hopes that Malmö can do more on solar.
