Helsingborg Declaration

Who doesn’t want to join?

The Helsingborg Declaration is an initiative where the city works together with stakeholders from the entire logistics chain to develop the Helsingborg region into Europe’s most sustainable and fast-moving logistics hub. Would your company or organisation like to join the Helsingborg Declaration? Below you can find more information about what this means.

Five strategic areas for green transition

In the Helsingborg Declaration, we highlight five areas with strong potential for green transition in different parts of the logistics chain:

These areas have been selected as they focus on climate change impacts that are close to the business operations and can therefore be influenced.

Packaging logistics

Circularity, reuse, and recycling

Fossil-free energy

Smart, seamless, and efficient logistics

Technology and infrastructure

Together we are leading the way in the green transition

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. There are few issues as important for our future welfare, and green growth is high on the agenda for decision makers worldwide. In order to avoid the most catastrophic consequences of climate change, we must rapidly reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

EU Mission to reach 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030

The City of Helsingborg is well on its way and has been chosen to be part of the EU Mission to reach 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030. We have also been named Sweden’s top green municipality four years in a row, and five times in total.

The best logistics location in Sweden

The Helsingborg region has the best logistics location in Sweden and a significant part of the business sector is connected to the logistics chain.

We are raising the level of ambition

We are raising the level of ambition for the city’s work with climate change adaptation, with sights set on becoming climate neutral by 2030. Achieving this goal requires that we join forces and all do our part.

Together we are leading the way in the green transition. The goal is to become Europe’s most sustainable and fast-moving logistics hub, with academia, political organisations, the private sector, and civil society all playing a key role in delivering this ambition.

That is why we are now launching the Helsingborg Declaration. Together, we are creating a network and a platform with stakeholders from every part of the logistics chain. Everyone who joins the movement has the ambition to accelerate their transition to climate neutrality by 2030. What makes us effective is that we are all acting together – organisations both large and small at all levels and all stages of the supply chain.

The common goal is net zero emissions by 2030

Our ambition is to achieve net zero emissions by 2030. The necessary transition calls for cooperation within industries and between companies, politicians, and civil servants at a level never seen before. We must find new ways of working, and we must do it together, quickly.

Achieving the ambition of net zero by 2030 means that emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane must correspond to zero by 2035. This applies to transport, electricity and district heating, industry, heating, industrial machinery, agriculture, and waste.
