Project

JULIA 2030 : Mitigation of and Adaptation to the Climate Change in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area - From Strategy to Implementation

Description:

The ‘Julia 2030’ project was set up to implement and demonstrate new methods, procedures and tools, and to develop existing methods, procedures and tools as part of a climate strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Helsinki metropolitan area. The project actions would concentrate on public procurement, use of public premises, transport and waste management. The project would result in the development of a regional strategy for adaptation to climate change in the Helsinki metropolitan area. Within the ‘Julia 2030’ project, a regional climate change adaptation strategy was developed. This strategy aims at preparing the region for the consequences of and to reduce the region’s vulnerability to climate change. Translating efforts to reduce CO2 emissions into clear policy initiatives will require a long time. Nevertheless, cost savings can be achieved in the running of public buildings, the procurement of goods, the selection of transport modes and the handling of waste. (Source: JULIA 2030)
