    • First action plan period 2009-2011
      • Raising the awareness about the plan has taken a long time, more resources should have been available for communication
    • Coordination group has enhanced the work
      • Responsibility for carrying out actions and follow-up is divided
      • Now we can also concentrate on cooperation with citizens and businesses not just city’s own operations
    • Political steering group  stronger political support also in concrete issues not just in principles level
    • Key has been integrating the climate actions to Espoo city strategy, no longer a separate action plan
      • Climate targets and concrete actions are included in unit scorecards
