Sustainable urban development - Albertslund Kommune

In Albertslund, protecting the nature and minimizing the environmental aspects of the city's urban activities are of key importance.

Green City

In an effort to make the city as sustainable as possible, Albertslund has undertaken many projects, including the development of a green accounting system to monitor heat, electricity and water, production of waste and CO2 emissions of the city's public buildings, residences, and businesses.

Green Cities is a close and binding partnership between the Danish municipalities of Albertslund, Allerød, Herning, Kolding and Copenhagen founded in 2000.

A Green Cities municipality does its utmost to maintain, protect and improve the environment and works towards creating a sustainable local community in the long term.

Smart City

Moving into the future, Albertslund hopes to be a hub for Smart City innovation that will promote advancements in technologies that will help make the city more efficient and sustainable.

Healty lifestyles

The city also promotes healthy and sustainable lifestyles for its residents that lead to environmental benefits, like bicycling rather than driving personal vehicles and outdoor activites on the green areas surrounding the city. Security, clean air and welfare has a high political priority.

Green Goals

In its 2013 City Plan, Albertslund set 3 sustainability goals for itself:

  • Reduce energy and resource consumption by effective and innovative solutions
  • Make it easy for citizens and businesses to be climate- and environmentally-conscious
  • Reduce CO2-emissions in 2015 by 25% compared to 2006 and by 80% compared to 1986

This initiative is part of the Green Cities project, where six municipalities have set high and ambitions goals for the future climate change.
