ICA and Siemens in One Tonne Life

ICA and Siemens are now joining ‘One Tonne Life’ as industry partners – a world-unique test in which a family with children will try to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions to one tonne per person per year.

Test family will live climate-smart without affecting standard of living

In order to stop climate change, our emissions of greenhouse gases must be dramatically decreased – from currently around seven tonnes per person and year to one tonne in the future.

Today sees the launch of a world-first – a unique test in which a couple with young children will try to achieve the one-tonne emission level yet at the same time live a regular life.

The “One Tonne Life” project has been initiated by three Swedish companies: A-hus, Vattenfall and Volvo Cars.
