Jönköping is rich in natural scenery and resources. Lake Vättern is a pure clear water lake, located in the city center. This is Europe’s fifth largest lake, included in the EU network nature of protection, Natura 2000 and this is from where we receive our daily drinking water. The area Östra Vätterbranterna was named a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2012.
We are proud to have this model landscape for the coexistence of man and environment, reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use. Jönköping, together with a large number of private companies, public agencies, nonprofit organisations and Jönköping University, plays an active part in the regional Climate Council. The goal is set to produce more renewable energy than we consume by the year 2050. Each year the Climate Council hosts one of the largest climate conferences in Sweden.
In Jönköping we know that a rich and easily accessible outdoor life prevents illness and contributes to increased environmental commitment. With that in mind outdoor activities are made accessible to the public using the natural resources in our surroundings. An important part of the city’s infrastructure is made up of green areas such as nature parks for recreation, leisure, socializing and biological dispersal corridors. Jönköping is also a Fair trade city since 2009.
