The project concerns the financing of investment schemes forming part of the city of Jönköpings's four-year investment programme from 2015 to 2018.
The project is expected to comprise a number of small to medium-sized schemes in the fields of education, childcare, housing and transportation as well as investments in waste management and other municipal infrastructure.
Sweden, as an EU Member State, has harmonised its environmental legislation in line with the relevant EU directives (Directives 2011/92/EU and 2001/42/EC).
