New environmental goal: Fossil fuel free in Jämtland County 2030

2019-10-21T15:12:28.053Z

A fossil fuel-free region by 2030. This is the goal of a new energy and climate strategy developed by Region Jämtland Härjedalen and the County Administrative Board.



The goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 10 per cent each year during the period 2020-2030. Nationally, Sweden has a target of a corresponding reduction of 5-8 per cent to reach the goals in the Paris Agreement.

- If you, as an individual, want to reduce your carbon dioxide emissions, you can first and foremost look at how large emissions you have and in what areas, says Karin Thomasson (MP), chairman of the Climate Council.

The strategy includes five specially-focused areas of focus in the county where efforts need to be made to reach the goals: Fossil-free transport and work machines, the forest as a resource and coal sump, renewable energy, climate-smart foods and sustainable consumption.

- We see that transport is an important issue for the county to work with, but also the food issues. To eat in Jämtland and that we have a production in Jämtland too, says Susanna Löfgren, county council in the Jämtland County Administrative Board.
