The Municipality of Nedelišće is located in the northern part of the Republic of Croatia. Municipality is the third largest local government in Medjimurje county. In the municipal area operate more than 200 entrepreneurs. The proposed measured to reduce CO2 emissions within the framework of Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) consists of clearly defined measured for the period up to 2030, with the aim of reducing the emissions by at least 40 %.


In order to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 % in the municipal area by 2030, 19 measures have been defined in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources for the building, traffic and public lighting sectors. Proposed measures include promotion activities, education, raising awareness and investing in renewable energy sources.

Public buildings are the most important segment for implementing energy efficiency and climate change mitigation measures. Since the largest share of CO2 emissions in the municipal area belongs to the building sector, the majority measures (14) are related to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the mentioned sector.

The implementation of all proposed measures requires a significant financial resources (almost 67 million euros) with the aim of achieving annual savings of 57,986 MWh and reduction of CO2 emissions by 8,689t CO2.

The risk of natural disaster is more frequent in the observed area through extremely high and low temperatures, short-term and heavy precipitation with short-term flooding of certain residential and agricultural areas of the municipality, and through droughts and windstorm.

Future climate change could potentially have large negative effects in various systems in Republic of Croatia, including Municipality of Nedelišće, with only a few long-term positive effects.
