In 2007 Frederikshavn municipality was appointed the country´s first climate municipality when the mayor signed an ambitious climate municipality agreement with Denmark´s Preservation of Nature Association.
The local climate agreement commits Frederikshavn municipality to reduce the CO2 emission with 3% per year until 2025. Energy renovation of the local government buildings, more than 400,000 m2, is one of the areas with great potential to reduce the energy consumption.
In the municipality of Frederikshavn, many energy optimizing activities have been implemented, which makes the municipality frontrunner in the area.
By realizing the yearly goal in the local climate agreement, the municipality contributes to the general ambition of the entire municipality as a geographical unit to be provided with sustainable energy in 2030.
