Sweden's third largest city is committed to the development of environmentally friendly energy, transport and recycling systems as part of its goal to become the world's most sustainable urban area by 2020.
One of the key components in achieving Malmö's goal is to attract funding. From 1998, Malmö has received support from the Swedish government and the European Union for its transition. Grontmij will assist in the development of applications for financial support from government and other sources for sustainable urban development. In addition, Grontmij will be networking for the development of new policies, programmes and projects over the two-year framework period.
Per-Anders Tauson, water and energy manager at Grontmij in Sweden said: “this is not a traditional consulting role but rather a creative process where we, as Grontmij, can contribute to Malmö's continued evolution into an eco-city.”
