City of Heidelburg

Country: Germany

The Heidelburg Department of Transport and Environment focuses on analysis of energy consumption and emissions of motorised transport systems as well as assessment of measures and strategies for reduction of transport-related environmental impacts. Concern for the environment and climate has a long tradition in Heidelberg. Over the decades, together with its many network partners, the city has established a reputation as a center of environment and sustainability.
