The Gothenburg region has one of the world’s most advanced district heating systems and many companies in the region offer innovative solutions for smarter heating.

Sweden is very much to the fore when it comes to innovations in environmental engineering and green system solutions. As such, overseas companies and organisations, regions and countries that want to learn more in these fields are keen to visit Gothenburg – providing golden opportunities for companies in Gothenburg and surrounds to establish contact and present their offerings. However, when running a business, it's difficult to keep track of what's going on, who's here and whether they're of interest. This is where Green Gothenburg comes into the picture.
