Sweden's ICA Gruppen Receives Award For Eco Project

The UN has announced that ICA Sweden has won an award for its 'Klimaträtt' (Climate-right, or 'fair') project. The award will be presented in November, at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

One of thirteen winners in the category of Information and Communication Technology, the 'Klimaträtt' project was lauded as an innovative example of how companies can help to reduce the impact on the environment.

The project, initiated by ICA and the apartment-rental agency Uppsalahem, motivated the residents of an apartment block in Uppsala to reduce their climate impact, by using an app to convert purchases into CO2 emissions and measure their daily impact on the climate.

"What a fantastic award! This is further proof of how exciting and interesting our project is,” commented Kerstin Lindvall, SVP Corporate Responsibility at ICA Sweden. “Climate-right has resulted in an average 31% lower climate footprint among the project’s participants. If everyone in Sweden were to achieve such a reduction in carbon emissions, it would equal half of Sweden’s 2020 target for lower emissions."
