Lund was the first municipality to create a local climate policy council in 2018. The council consists of researchers from Lund University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Every year the council hands over a report to the municipal board and on May 4 Professor Lena Neij from the IIIEE presented the 2022 report.

The council reviews Lund’s work with climate impact and reduction of its climate impact. They also suggest improvements for Lund to achieve its climate goals. In summary the 2022 report states that many things are going in the right direction and the emissions are decreasing. However, an acceleration is needed and there will be many challenges in the future. It’s important that Lund municipality paves the way through changes in structures, technical systems and lifestyles.

"We demand concrete actions that focus on collaboration and a strengthened local climate organization with resources to mobilize more partners and new initiatives. To produce a vision that motivates the business sector and the civil society to act and contribute to the change could be an important start", says Lena Neij, chairman of the climate policy council.
