We have joined Climate Alliance Lund
We are working to reduce CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions in Lund by at least 40% before 2030.
I January 2018, AF Bostäder joined Climate Alliance Lund (Klimatallians Lund). Climate Alliance Lund is a network consisting of various local companies, such as Lund University, the International Environment Institute, Kraftringen, Trivector, Sparbanken Skåne and Lund municipality.
Climate change is one of our biggest challenges today. In recent years we have pursued a proactive environmental work to minimize the negative environmental impact. For example, our first sustainability report is released this spring, which means that more people to follow our development towards sustainability. The next step is to collaborate more with other local actors, sharing of experiences in the work on climate change, in order to achieve more together.
Lund municipality is one of the 7000 local communities worldwide that has signed the Global Covenant of Mayors (Borgmästaravtalet). European Commission stands behind the agreement, which implies a commitment to set higher targets than the EU in the area of climate change. This means that the municipality is committed to work with adaptation to climate change and reducing its emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030.
AF Bostäder has now signed a Letter of Intent. There, we assure that we are actively working to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
Our intention is:
- Work actively to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to Lund municipality achieving the goals of the Global Covenant of Mayors
- Share our experiences from our climate-related work
