Klimatpåverkan från privat konsumtion i svenska kommuner - Vad kan Helsingborgs stad göra för att främja en hållbar privat konsumtion ur ett klimatperspektiv?
Sammanfattning: The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has come to the conclusion that Sweden must cut their greenhouse gas emissions by around 80 % until the year 2050 for it to be possible to meet the climate targets set by the UN. This study aims to show what role the municipalities in Sweden play in the transition of the society to sustainable levels of emissions, focusing on private consumption. The purpose of this study is furthermore to map the current activities within the municipality of Helsingborg that effects private consumption, to find out whether there are additional actions that Helsingborg can take to further support sustainable consumption patterns. To find out how municipalities see their role in the transition towards sustainable consumption and to find out how they work with these issues, interviews with civil servants at several Swedish municipalities has been conducted. In addition to the interviews a case study of Helsingborg has been completed by mapping municipal documents to investigate what Helsingborg can do to further support a sustainable consumption among its citizens. The results show that the municipality’s possibilities to influence their citizens vary considerably between different consumption sectors. Their main focus is on activities aimed at consumption of transports, while housing, food and other consumption is mostly handled through waste disposal measures and activities to support a more circular economy. The ongoing work in Helsingborg is in many respects similar to that in the interviewed municipalities. The municipality of Helsingborg works in all the expected areas, but can improve further by following good examples from other municipalities.
