Interreg Baltic Sea region 2021 – 2027

Priority 3:
Climate-neutral societies

Programme objective 3.1

Circular economy

The Programme supports actions that facilitate the shift from linear to circular resource use. This implies keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible without increasing pressure on the environment. The holistic approach shall go beyond waste management to connect with water, energy, transport
and land use.

Programme Objective 3.2

Energy transition

The Programme supports actions for the decarbonisation of energy systems in the region in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The solutions shall increase energy efficiency in industrial production processes as well as in public and private building stock. The Programme also encourages actions to increase renewable energy production from locally available resources.

Programme Objective 3.3

Smart green mobility

A green and well-functioning cross-border mobility system is vital for the development of the region. The Programme supports the smooth movement of people and goods in and across urban and rural areas while saving resources by increasing efficiency, integrating different transport modes and accelerating digitalisation.
