Consid signs climate contract with Kristianstad municipality

IT and communication company Consid was one of the first six businesses in Kristianstad to sign the municipality's climate contract. Consid is now one of eleven companies contributing to the green transition in northeast Skåne.

– For us, it was self-evident to be involved in the local climate goals that Kristianstad municipality aims to achieve. Sustainable and green transition is beneficial for everyone. At Consid, we are committed to promoting sustainable community development in collaboration with our employees, customers, and suppliers. We strive to achieve the United Nations’ 17 global goals, prioritizing ten of these goals where we believe Consid can make a particular impact, says Roger Olofsson, Office Manager at Consid in Kristianstad.

The climate contract is part of Kristianstad municipality’s commitment to Viable Cities, with a goal to be climate-neutral by 2030. To achieve this, the municipality has entered into a climate contract with eleven major local companies, aiming to reduce the municipality’s collective carbon footprint. This involves rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously contributing to the ecological, social, and sustainable development of the municipality.

– There has been significant interest from businesses in the municipality to sign local climate contracts, which is fantastic! I want to emphasize the mutual commitment in these local climate contracts. It means that we collectively join forces to succeed in climate transition, says Linnéa Skoogh, project manager for Climate-Neutral Kristianstad 2030, to the local news paper Norra Skåne.

Consid’s office manager put pen to paper in October. Through the agreement, the companies commit to a set of goals related to reducing their climate impact. For Consid, this involves:

• Mapping climate impact and reducing the footprint
• Working towards sustainable consumption
• Choosing sustainable electricity providers

– As a service company, we have certain advantages regarding carbon emissions. Nevertheless, we can improve. By mapping and reporting our emissions, we hope to reduce them by ten percent in the next twelve months, says Roger Olofsson.
