European Green Capital Award
The European Green Capital Award recognises the important role that local authorities play in improving the environment and provides an incentive for cities to inspire each other and share best practices. Applicants for the award are assessed by an Expert Panel and shortlisted cities are invited to present their vision, action plan and communication strategy to the Jury. Climate change: mitigation and adaptation is one of 12 environmental indicators assessed.
Bristol, the European Green Capital 2015, has implemented a long term commitment to improving the environment in the city and has been working to reduce the city’s contribution to climate change since 2000 and it has developed and delivered a series of strategies and action plans in order to achieve this, such as the Bristol Climate Protection and Sustainable Energy Strategy and the Local Transport Plan to 2026, and active participation with citizens noise perception in the Quality of Life Survey.
