Copenhagen Named European Green Capital 2014

Copenhagen was named European Green Capital 2014 by the European Commission ahead of 17 other European cities. The Lord Mayor of Copenhagen Frank Jensen was in Brussels to accept the award that recognizes Copenhagen’s ambitious climate plans.

"It’s a pat on the back for all Copenhageners and the city’s green businesses who do what they can every day to make Copenhagen a greener and more sustainable city," said Frank Jensen in a press release.

Among the jury’s arguments for presenting the award to Copenhagen were the city’s efforts to increase the number of cyclists, become carbon neutral by 2025 and ensure Copenhageners better access to green spaces.

EU environment commissioner Janez Potočnik congratulated Copenhagen on the award.

"The rest of Europe could learn a lot from Copenhagen’s climate efforts and the high quality of life that Copenhageners lead. This prize reflects the fact that Copenhagen is making significant efforts to develop its urban space in order to deliver a more healthy and sustainable city for Copenhageners," said Janez Potočnik.

Copenhagen will celebrate the green capital title by organizing events throughout 2014 together with 75 partner organizations and businesses.

The events will be kicked off on January 22nd at City Hall Square and other public spaces around Copenhagen city centre. A full programme will be published in January.
