Sustainability Report

This report presents several examples that demonstrate that Stockholm Royal Seaport is in the frontline of sustainable urban development in Sweden. Our requirements are usually more onerous than the national building regulations, and we are developing important knowledge for the building and construction sector. If we, as a city, are to live up to Agenda 2030, we need projects that spur development, and we need to share lessons learnt.

Consequently, all results and figures from our work are found on stockholmroyalseaport2018
