”According to the jury, if just two out of ten of the world's cities implemented Uppsala's policies, global CO2 emissions could decrease by 58,000,000 tonnes a year. That amount is equivalent to the total annual emissions in all of Sweden.”

It’s the first time the title goes to a city in Sweden.

Yes, I think it is that Sweden on average does okay, but being selected global city is a completely other level.
