The Smart City

Kista Science City

To achieve the City’s environmental goals, an efficient cooperation between inhabitants, the private industry, the public sector and many other players is crucial. Environmental and information technology are both key priorities in developing a sustainable society.

Green IT leads the way

Green IT is the collective name for the measures designed to improve our environment with the help of IT. It involves using information technology to reduce negative impact on the environment, as well as lowering the energy consumption and environmental impact of the IT sector as a whole.

Green IT-strategy


Efficient public services are key factors in a thriving city and they should be characterised by a common desire to prioritize citizens' different needs and desires. The city’s responsibility is to provide support and facilitate in everyday life. Applying for permits, schools, elderly care or to plan the commuting rout to work, are just a few examples of popular e-services offered.

e-Stockholm - The City of Stockholm's strategy for e-services and the technology of the future

One of the world's most connected cities

Stockholm’s fibre solution is constantly contributing to making the city more attractive to businesses in general and the tech sector in particular.

The goal of the City's fiber network efforts is to build a competition-neutral infrastructure capable of meeting future communication needs, spur economic activity, diversity and freedom of choice, as well as minimising disruption to the city’s streets. The fiber network in Stockholm is provided and adminstered by Stokab, a company owned by Stockholm City Council.

World leading ICT cluster

Kista Science City is now the natural meeting place for anyone working in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). Since IBM and Ericsson moved to Kista in the 1970s, over 1,000 other ICT companies have followed suit. They now collectively constitute one of the world’s foremost ICT clusters.
