UFGC: Cities inspiring green innovation

The city of Stockholm has committed to become fossil fuel free by 2040 – with the city administration anticipating to achieve this feat for its own services by 2030. Anna König Jerlmyr, the recently elected mayor of Stockholm, says that climate was notably a top issue for voters in the campaign. It’s also an area of key importance to König Jerlmyr herself, who plans to tackle other environmental challenges, such as reducing plastic use and waste.
