Sustainable built environments

We want to contribute to Swedish cities and communities showing the world how it is possible to create good living conditions for everyone within the planetary boundaries!

This web page has been machine translated. If there are any uncertainties, please refer to the Swedish text.

Sustainable built environments are about how the physical environment is planned, built, digitized, used and managed. But also how the physical and perceived environment can affect both humans and biological systems.

The focus in this area is to reduce climate impact and strengthen resilience in our cities and communities. We also focus on strengthening social sustainability to create safe, attractive and health-promoting living environments.

To bring about such a change, digitalisation, international cooperation and policy and governance will be key building blocks.
