Green Ambassadors support the green transition in Sonderborg

04 Apr 2021

The residents of one of the SmartEnCity involved housing association SAB met in October 2020 to learn more about how they can support Sonderborg´s climate transition through joint efforts. They will act as Green Ambassadors towards citizens promoting the housing association's green transition.

Housing associations are important climate transition partners

The first Green Ambassador training session took place at the EUC Syd – vocational school in Sonderborg, where the local residents were informed about the new program and how they can become local green ambassadors. All housing associations in Sonderborg Municipality have committed to become active participants in the initiative. The tenants must help support the association's green transition. The six housing associations are retrofitting 3,300 apartments for a total of DKK 114 million in the coming years.

Director Peter Rathje, ProjectZero, gave a presentation on the city council's vision to become CO2-neutral by 2029 and mentioned that it is about "efficient use of a renewable energy supply based on the area's own, green resources". The housing associations are an important partner in achieving the goal. All together, they need to reduce their CO2 emissions by 9,000 tonnes which is highlighted in the Roadmap2025.
