Copenhagen Says: Green-up Your City!
How do you combine sustainability and economic growth? Copenhagen seems to have found an answer. In a rare visit to New York, Frank Jensen, the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen, shares how Copenhagen’s green aspirations and holistic approach to urban development have spurred economic growth and created a livable city with one of the world’s highest quality of life.
Copenhagen has developed its sustainable solutions to suit the demands of the city’s residents and businesses. They in turn have supported the political decisions and strategies created to address those issues. It is not only about reducing CO2 emissions, but also about improving the quality of life and creating jobs and business opportunities throughout the entire economy.
