Keynote Address by Sten Nordin, Mayor of Stockholm
Stockholm’s hard work to become a leader in green technology has been recognized by the EU with the award of the first annual Green Capital of Europe for 2010. The city hopes to use this recognition to help spread their values of sustainability to the rest of the world.

Active measures to reduce carbon emissions are already in place. The Mayor emphasized that the city cannot rest on its laurels and has great plans to continue its innovative practices in the future. Stockholm is on pace to have zero carbon emissions for the entire city by 2050.
