  • Objective

    Over the past 15-20 years, Lomma Hamn has been transformed from an industrial harbor into an attractive, appreciated, and accessible residential area. Lomma municipality has not only taken care of an environmental debt and created a well-known brand but also experienced a 30 percent increase in population compared to before the redevelopment. This has been achieved with determination, a long-term perspective and focus on sustainability.

  • Green Zone is a unique pioneering project, proving that it’s possible to create an almost waste-free environment even when building and operating services like a car wash and petrol station. The synergy-based solutions for air, light, energy and water make Green Zone a centre for learning about circular sustainability. Green Zone in Umeå was the first of its kind when it was established in 2000, and it’s still a role model when it comes to energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and a circular approach.
