European Green Capital

The European Green Capital Award was conceived as an initiative to encourage and reward the efforts of cities to improve the environment, and for their high level of commitment to genuine green progress. Energy performance is one of twelve environmental indicators assessed by the Jury in the selection of a city to be awarded the European Green Capital.
