Let Us Look at Bristol

Bristol is the lucky city that left Brussels (Belgium), Glasgow (Scotland) or Ljubljana (Slovenia) in the shadows. Beside it, Nantes from France is the owner of the title that rewards the places that are continuous in their efforts to maintain high eco-friendly requirements and are constantly open to enhancements. Throughout the last year's competition, Bristol came behind Copenhagen (Denmark) and it can be said that it is the 3rd time that it was consisted of in the last list.


The financial investment strategies were the ones that assisted Bristol gain popularity in the eyes of the jury. Specifically those predestined for transportation (a remarkable 500 million Euro budget plan until the year 2015) and energy (an unbelievable 300 million Euro spending plan for sustainable energy and energy efficiency by the year 2020). There currently is an amount of 100 million Euros confirmed for ELENA financial investments connected to renewable resource.


Fortunately, the carbon discharge has been minimized in Bristol starting with 2005, even if the economy kept on expanding. And it does not plan to end today. By the year 2030, Bristol intends to become the European center for the minimized carbon sector and plans to provide 17,000 jobs in domains like digital, low-carbon or innovative sections. In 2012 equaled a 4.7 % development for the green economy in Bristol.

Eco-friendly functions

This is not the only measure taken by Bristol. Here the variety of bicyclists has actually increased and continues to grow. Lots of people understand it as the "city for children" and each kid in main college is motivated to plant and own a tree.

Example and slogan

A terrific feature of this city is that it offers a wonderful deal of examples for the other cities in Europe. Bristol has actually developed the great concept of modifying the seventy hectare current in the Temple Meads station into an environment-friendly entrance that integrates a concert arena of about 12,000 seats.

The slogan of this city is "Laboratory for Change" and it concentrates on management, novelty and education. Bristol will soon become available to the entire Europe from social media and lab conferences which reduce carbon footprints.

The Jury says ...

That Bristol is a real innovator in what concerns the green economy, has excellent communication approaches, optimism and dedication. Therefore it is worthy of to become a model for the entire Europe. Taking this into account, the Jury has actually chosen to change Bristol
