The Swedish capital is regarded as a role model in the fight against greenhouse gases and air pollution; already in 2010, it was named Europe's first green capital. Many buses and taxis run on biofuel here. The city plans to be completely free of fossil fuels by 2040, and today its entire electricity requirements are covered from renewable sources.
Anyone interested in ecological architecture should pay a visit to the Hammarby Sjöstad district: from the start of the construction in 2004, environmentally friendly measures such as energy generation from household waste were implemented. 80 percent of the routes there are covered by public transport, by bike or on foot.
