Liveable green city

Copenhagen is to be carbon neutral by 2025, cycling is the favoured means of transport, and the city boasts large recreational areas.

New sustainable city districts are on their way, and with the architecture to match. Planning a city for life – and cycling – now goes by the term ‘Copenhagenization’

Ambitious Climate initiatives

Climate change poses some specific challenges for Copenhagen with increased rainfall, warmer weather and rising sea levels. Copenhagen is in the process of adapting the city to a changed climate. At the same time Copenhagen as a city and capital takes responsibility for climate change. We want to combine growth, development and quality of life with reduced CO2 emissions, so that we can become the world's first CO2 neutral capital in 2025.
