Green and sustainable Øresund region: Eco-branding Copenhagen and Malmö
2013 (English)In: Urban Sustainability: A Global Perspective / [ed] Igor Vojnovic, East Lansing, Michigan: Michigan State University Press, 2013, 591-610 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
In this chapter we discuss the recent development of the region and analyze the relation between environmental quality in the region and policy programs to undergird the image of Øresund, Copenhagen, and Malmö as green environmental forerunners of urban sustainability. Have the latter had marked impact on the environment? Or has eco-branding primarily capitalized on previous environmental improvement—much of which was exogenously driven? Is this a place where sustainable living is in the becoming? Our aim is not to provide exhaustive answers to these questions, but more modestly to present an analysis supporting the relevance of these questions while indicating conclusions that more thorough analyses may reach.
