Here we provide an overview of achievements in the five strategy areas up to and including 2019.

1. Vibrant City

1.1 Create a robust and cohesive city structurePlanned waterfront, pedestrian and bicycle lanes in ongoing detailed development plans. 80% of residents are extremely/fairly satisfied with pedestrian/ bicycle access to neighbouring areas. Resident survey 2019.
1.2 Contribute to the creation of an equal cityDevelopment of concepts for norm-creating housing design.
53% rental apartments (of which 9% student accommodation) and 47% tenant-owned apartments. Apartment sizes vary as follows: 10% one-room apartments, 33% two-room, 29% three-room, 24% four-room, and 4% five-rooms or more.
1.3 Plan for well-functioning everyday lifeTo date, we have built 1 elementary school, 11 pre-school, and 1 sports hall. According to the 2019 residents survey, residents are extremely or fairly satisfied with access to:
• pre-schools and schools 26%.
• culture activities 12%.
• places for play for children under 6, 47%.
• places for play for children over 6, 26%.
• supermarkets 64%.
• restaurants, cafés etc. 47%
• squares and meeting places 72%.
• sports and leisure activities 42%.
1.4 Create spaces that are attractive and safe all day, all yearSafety walks. Planned public open space with social values. Follow-up of use of public space with the help of sensors. Public open space with social values 16%, equivalent to 27  per dwelling. According to the residents survey, 79% feel safe in Stockholm Royal Seaport.

This strategy helps achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals: 

2. Accessibility and Proximity

2.1 Prioritise walking, cycling, and public transport in planningImplementation of planning regulations for walking and cycling. Prioritisation of public transport. Shortcut ratio varies between 1.07 and 1.36 for those who have the shortest distance to walk to important destinations (Norra 2). According to the 2019 residents survey, the proportion of residents who are extremely or quite satisfied with access to:

• walkways/pavements 89%.
• cycle paths 77%.
• public transport 66%.
• safety of pedestrians 59%.
• cyclists 56%

7,550 bicycle spaces and 1,890 car spaces for 6,750 residents.
8% of on-street car parking spaces for carpooling.
7% of on-street car parking spaces have electrical charging (carpool) and a fastcharge station. 10% of parking spaces on development land have electrical charging. Increased requirement for electrical charging in future land allocations.
2.2 Plan for living street spaces that support flexible use Streets for activity and recreation are planned in future phases. Commercial space: 13%. Public open spaces with social values: 16% (= 17 /dwelling). According to the 2019 residents survey, 79% of residents are extremely/quite satisfied with safety in the area.
2.3 Infrastructure should support co-loading and efficient, sustainable freight transportEstablished CCC and MCC.
Co-loading effect in the construction area was 80%.

3. Resource efficiency and climate responsibility

Waste and Bulk Materials Management
3.1 Continually reduce the amount and increase the purity of wasteResidual waste: 98.6 kg/person, newspapers: 5.6 kg/person (2020), and plastic packaging: 5.9 kg/person.
Pop-up Reuse was in the area on two occasions and 1.9 tonnes of bulky waste, 0.3 tonnes of electronics, and 0.4 tonnes of hazardous waste were handed in.
Construction waste (developers) average amount:
• Construction waste: 44.6 kg/m² GFA
• Construction waste (public open space): 62% have gone to material recycling.
• 37% to energy recycling.
• 0% reuse.
• 1% mixed.
• < 1 % to landfil
3.2 Water and wastewater management should be optimised in terms of energy and resource management100% of households and businesses have kitchen grinders.
3.3 Support a circular construction and management processEstablished the MCC, local purification of contaminated excavated materials and
drainage-pump water. In 2020, mass balance was around 49% and totalled 39%
Energy and Climate
3.4 Efficient energy use in buildings and facilitiesExperience feedback Norra 2 and Brofästet. Metered (requirements 55 kWh/m² per years Norra 2) = 70 kWh/m² Atemp per year (purchased energy). Average recorded energy use for dwellings in Norra 2 is 22% under applicable Swedish building code regulations.
3.5 Stockholm Royal Seaport is to be fossil-free 2030.Development site: total produced solar energy: 558 MWh/year (metered).
Public open space, MCC: total produced solar energy: 243 MWh (year) (metered).
7% of the total number of street car parking spaces in public open space have electrical charging (carpooling) and a fast-charging station.
10% of car parking spaces on development sites have electrical charging.
Requirements for electrical charging has increased to 50% of car parking spaces in future land allocations.
In 2020, the share of renewable fuel used for truck transports made by the City of Stockholm’s own contractors in Stockholm Royal Seaport amounted to 20% and 2% for machinery.
3.6 Low climate impact of buildings and facilities from a lifecycle perspectiveAverage climate impact (public open spaces):
• Norra 1: 260 kg CO2e /m²
• Västra: 840 CO2e /m²
• Norra 2: 100 CO2e /m²
Climate impact from energy use in Norra 2: Total amount is 1,640 tonnes CO2e equivalent to approx. 248 kg CO2e/person.
Measures for a fossil-free workplace have contributed to reductions in emissions equivalent to 1,240 tonnes CO2e in 2020.
Biochar used in plant beds in Stockholm Royal Seaport have sequestered 1,100 tonnes of CO2 to date.
Sustainable Buildings
3.7 Good indoor environments in design and use of buildings80% of developers meet gold standard for indoor environments.
3.8 Sustainable choice of construction materialsProportion of non-approved deviation of total registered deviations:
• developers: 22%.
• public spaces: 13%.
100% of developers and City of Stockholm contractors document materials in digital logbooks. 100% of wood used is FSC certified, 100% of natural stone used meets City of Stockholm ethical requirements. Review of environmental and social aspects of wood in outdoor construction.
3.9 Robust constructionLCCA-based fall protection and waste bins connected to the vacuum waste collection system in 2019

This strategy helps achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals: 

4. Let nature do the work

4.1 Use ecosystem services to build a resilient and healthy city environmentUpdated Green Space Index.

91% property developers fulfil GSI.

14 hectares of green spaces such as green oases, green roofs, and courtyards have been created to date.

100% of dwellings have access to park and nature areas within 200 metres.

This strategy helps achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals: 

5. Participation and Consultation

Communication campaign on waste.
5.3 Private and public activities contribute to the sustainable profile of the area4 pre-schools of 11 are Green Flag certified.

Two safety walks.

Systematic working environment initiatives.
5.4 Knowledge and experiences generated in Stockholm Royal Seaport is to be shared10 ongoing R&D projects.
