About Grön BoStad Stockholm

Grön BoStad Stockholm aims to create sector-crossing collaboration to foster growth in small- and medium enterprises in the Stockholm Region, contribute to a low-carbon economy, and combat segregation.

Grön BoStad Stockholm is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, and aims to support small and medium-sized enterprises in the housing sector.

Grön BoStad Stockholm:

Connects SMEs with testbeds for new, green, technology to facilitate their getting-to-market.

Advises housing companies, institutions and SMEs on procurement processes to include sustainability and integration aspects.

Links SMEs with researchers from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, to help develop new innovations, methods and technologies.

Provides SMEs with an arena in which to meet costumers and suppliers from the region.

Background:

The Stockholm Region is one of Europe’s fastest-growing areas and there is large awareness that Stockholm is facing major challenges, such as the need for more housing construction.

The population in the region will grow from 2,2 million residents today to 2,7 million by 2030 and 3,0 million 2045.

Therefore, there is a need to build 300,000 new apartments by 2030 in the Stockholm area.

 

There are also other, related challenges:

Segregation has increased, existing homes need renovation (those from the ”Million Homes Programme”, especially).

In addition, thousands of temporary homes are needed.
