Tackling consumption-based emissions in the City of Stockholm: The One Tonne Life Project

Charlotta Porsö, Project Leader and Örjan Lönngren, Senior Advisor, Environmental Management, Planning and Environment, and Energy and Climate, City of Stockholm – 09/06/2018 15:00 UTC   Find your time zone

Is it possible for a family in Sweden to reduce their emissions to one tonne per person and year? Charlotta Porsö and Örjan Lönngren have all the answers. Watch this webinar featuring the One Tonne Life, a collaborative project between the City of Stockholm, Vattenfall, Volvo, house manufacturer A-Hus, Swedish supermarket chain ICA, and other partners.
The One Tonne Life project was initiated to inspire people to reduce emissions in their everyday lives. For six months, one family lived in a house built with the latest technology – special insulation, rooftop solar panels, composting and more. Their ten-year-old car was exchanged for an all-electric car and they also had access to the best expertise in the fields of energy, food and household appliances. After six months, the family had reduced their carbon emissions down to 1.5 tonnes each, which corresponds to about 80% less emissions than an average Swedish family. 

Paris Climate Action Plan - Towards a carbon neutral city and 100% renewable energy [Part II]

Learn more about the newly announced ambitious Paris Climate Action Plan, adopted by the city council unanimously in March 2018. Paris Climate Action Plan comes as a response to the city’s participation in C40’s Deadline 2020 Pilot Programme, being one of the first city plans that aims to deliver the scale of emission reduction and ambitious climate action required to meet the highest targets of the Paris Agreement. 

Part II laid out the technical aspects considered within the process and methods undertaken to develop Paris Climate Action Plan, including +500 municipal actions.

Consumption-based GHG emissions of C40 cities

Michael Doust, Programme Director, Measurement and Planning, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group – 06/20/2018 14:00 UTC   Find your time zone

This webinar presented the 'Consumption-based GHG emissions of C40 Cities' Report, carried out by C40 in partnership with the University of Leeds (United Kingdom), the University of New South Wales (Australia), and Arup, and introduced the methodology and results of the study investigating the consumption-based greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from 79 C40 cities:

  • What are consumption-based GHG emissions?
  • Technical approach taken when assessing city consumption-based GHG emissions and results analysis
  • Need for taking action on consumption-based GHG emissions at city-level
