Nordic Climate declaration
The twin towns of Lahti, Västerås, Randers, Akureyri and Ålesund urge
all Nordic cities and municipalities to take climate challenges seriously
and to create local measures to meet these challenges.
I Our objective is to:
Have cities and municipalities reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Encourage cities and municipalities to invest in sustainable energy and transport solutions.
II Our initiative is based on:
Information from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, indicating that human activities essentially promote global warming, and that it is a serious threat to both nature and people.
The fact that even though climate change poses a global challenge that must be solved via binding international treaties, local measures are still important, and cities, municipalities and communities have a key role in implementing local measures.
