Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate if, and how, the municipalities in country Skåne integrated work with sustainable development with focus on the Swedish environmental objective “Limited climate impact”. The study also aims to investigate which tools the municipality uses to achieve sustainable development at the local level. Furthermore, the purpose was to investigate which obstacles that municipalities may have, in relation to “Limited climate impact” and suggest different solutions to these obstacles. The method used were a questionnaire, which was sent to employees who work with sustainable development and are responsible for achieving the environmental objectives in each municipality. The result of the study indicates that the majority of municipalities in Skåne county work to some extent with the environmental objective "Limited climate impact", some work even at a greater extent. The municipalities use methods like objective setting and vision work which are implemented in overview plans and other strategic documents. Other tools are also used, for example exchange of fossil fueled vehicle to non-vehicle or fossil-free vehicle. Obstacles which some of the municipalities challenges is financial difficulties and lack of interest from local politicians. One solution to the challenge is participation in different networks and working with projects ranging over different sectors in the municipality.
