Sustainable Tampere 2030
Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme ended 31st of December 2021.
Tampere aims to be carbon neutral by 2030. This means that Tampere will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent compared to 1990 levels and that the remaining 20 per cent will be compensated by increasing carbon sinks, such as forests and green areas.
The programme is particularly aimed at reducing emissions from urban planning, housing, mobility, energy and consumption. In addition to the city group, key collaborators include Tampere-based businesses, associations and residents. The programme specifies measures as jointly agreed between the involved parties and launches projects to implement them.
The city’s climate actions have been compiled into the Carbon Neutral Tampere 2030 Roadmap. The roadmap includes 236 actions under six themes: urban planning, mobility, construction, energy, consumption and nature.
Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme created the roadmap together with the city’s service areas, various departments, public utilities and city’s companies. The City Board approved the roadmap on August 31, 2020.
According to the roadmap impact assessment, the city’s measures will achieve a 72% reduction in emissions by 2030. However, it has not yet been possible to assess the impact of all measures. The roadmap will be updated as necessary to reach the goal.
Following projects are implementing Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme:
