About the project

Swedish startups and scaleups are paving the way in developing technological innovations to address climate change. The Swedish Climate Startup Map aims to increase the visibility of companies devoted to accelerating the green transition, helping them to attract investment, customers, and talent, and ultimately scaling up their technologies.

The latest version of the Map, released in February 2024, features 508 companies from all parts of Sweden offering a wide range of solutions and technologies for various industries. These companies were selected through a process that goes beyond carbon dioxide reduction to assess their climate performance from a holistic perspective. A new update of the Map is planned for the end of 2024.

The Swedish Climate Startup Map was initiated by Sting in 2020 as part of Startup Climate Action, funded by Vinnova, to showcase startups working towards creating change and solving climate challenges. The initiative is now led by Chalmers Ventures, Dalarna Science Park, Ignite Sweden, LEAD, SISP Swedish Incubators & Science Parks, and Sting.

This joint project continued in 2022 as part of the national initiative Omställningslyftet, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Tillväxtverket and Vinnova, and the Sustainable Energy Action, funded by Energimyndigheten.
