Welcome to Amsterdam, Europe's most sustainable city!

Amsterdam is a global leader in sustainable energy management, transportation, urban design and business innovation. With more than 60% of inner city trips taking place on two-wheels and more bicycles than people, Amsterdam has earned its reputation as a leading bicycle-friendly city. But Amsterdam's sustainable practices go well beyond climate neutral transportation. By 2025, the City of Amsterdam aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% compared to 1990 levels, focusing on renewable energy production, energy efficiency and conservation, and the construction of new climate neutral buildings. Amsterdam is also innovating in energy and waste management, electric vehicles use, and greening the ICT sector.

But wait, it's people that make Amsterdam the sustainable city it is! Sustainable Amsterdam is a new initiative that makes it easy for people working on sustainable projects and people interested in sustainability to meet each other, exchange ideas, and collaborate.

Our activities
A series of tours, awareness raising campaigns, debates, networking events, pub quizzes and fun meet ups are being planned for 2014, exploring what makes Amsterdam resilient and liveable.
