On 4 June in Stockholm, Graham Floater, Philipp Rode and Dimitri Zenghelis, directors of the LSE’s Economics of Green Cities Programme – launched a pivotal new piece of research, Stockholm: Green Economy Leader Report.
Stockholm is a leading city for green economic growth. Despite the global downturn, the city’s low carbon economy remains highly competitive and well positioned for driving sustained growth in the medium to long term. The report shows that Stockholm’s impressive growth has been delivered while increasing environmental performance and transitioning to a low carbon economy. It looks in detail at what Stockholm must do to maintain this position as a green leader, and how it might meet the ambitious targets it has set for itself.
