Gothenburg, Sweden 8th of May 2019
Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden, is undertaking its greatest development in modern history and will grow by nearly a third by 2035. The City of Gothenburg plans to invest €600 million a year in new schools and housing projects, all of which must meet strict sustainability criteria. The Hoppet preschool is a pilot project for these future developments and will be built with fossil-free materials and processes. This cutting-edge project will set the standard for future urban development in the city and will open up a thriving market for sustainable suppliers. The local administration of the City of Gothenburg, one of Sweden’s largest managers of public premises, is both project owner and developer of Hoppet.

What does Hoppet mean by fossil-free?
Hoppet looks at all materials and products – everything from building foundations and installations to paints and adhesives.

Furthermore, Hoppet also includes other emissions of greenhouse gases with climate impact, such as carbon dioxide released when lime is converted to cement.
