Top 25 Most Sustainable Cities In The World

Editors' Picks Trending

As a citizen, we all want to live in a green environment which is pollution free and full of nature. An overly populated city where no one cares about how their actions are affecting the environment is no one’s dream place to live in.

A sustainable city involves itself in urban planning, and city management and builds an eco-friendly society. Reducing carbon emissions, going zero waste, recycling, being conscious about food production and building green architecture are features of a sustainable city.

In this article, we have highlighted the work that is being done and the goals that are being achieved towards sustainability by some of the most popular cities in the world and how the residents of these cities are the ones leading the way for the rest of the world to build a more eco-friendly planet to live in.

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

Can you believe a country having only 29% of its population owning cars? Well if no, then yes that is Copenhagen for you. Residents of this city prefer cycling over driving at any point, leaving behind a greener environment.

There are more and more cycling lanes coming up. Copenhagen has now left behind Amsterdam and has become the most bicycle-friendly city. Buses are switching from electric to diesel at a very fast rate.

The Government has been investing a lot in eco-friendly green initiatives to bring about this change. Not only in terms of transportation but also with food, residents here consume organic food even in their fast food options like pizza, burgers, snacks etc. 24% of the food sold at the markets is organic farm produce, 88% of the food sold at restaurants and other commercial places are organic and even beer is crafted with organic ingredients.

The food waste from the restaurants can be recycled through dedicated vending machines for which people also receive deposits. An energy-efficient plant at Copenhill in Copenhagen turns waste into energy which then powers households. Every hotel ensures that they follow the set sustainability standards.

Two Third of their hotels are eco-certified indicating how innately they ensure following the sustainability standards, using sustainable energy and design. They even provide bicycles to their guests. All of these are all together making Copenhagen all set to reach its Carbon neutrality goal by 2025. 

2. Stockholm, Sweden

A beautiful city like Stockholm which has 14 islands and more than 50 bridges is not only becoming more sustainable day by day but is also educating its own people and other travellers on how it is to be done.

Every product in Stockholm has labels which tell people about how things were sourced to make the product. Therefore every person buying anything gets to know how eco-friendly the product they are buying really is. This initiative then like a snowball generates new ideas on how more products can be made eco-friendly.

Stockholm wants to be free from the dependent usage of fossil fuels by 2040. The government and also the European Union are major contributors to investments that will surely help Stockholm reach its goal. The city is generating biofuel from sewage that is available at many petrol stations and is also being actively used by cars.

Stockholm has the highest number of eco-friendly hotels in the world. Also in terms of fashion, Stockholm has quite a footing in the domain of Sustainable fashion. Stockholm also recycles all its waste and also is mastering town planning which ensures easy cycling or walking around the city.

Stockholm has been working with Fortum, an energy company where the heat generated from stadiums, supermarkets and data centres can be used to power households instead of wasting it.

3. Lahti, Finland

Lahti is a Finnish city located 100 kilometres northeast of Helinski with a population of 120,000. Lahti has been named the 4th most sustainable city in Finland and it’s also the first Finnish city to receive this honour. Lahti also became Europe’s green capital in 2021. Lahti is also going to become carbon neutral by 2025.

In the year 2018, Lahti had successfully recycled 97% of its waste and by 2050 it has aimed to become a waste-free city. In 2019, Lahti stopped using coal for energy and moved towards recycled fuel and local wood. This move from Lahti leads to a 600,000 tonnes reduction in emissions.

Lahti developed the first application in the world named CitiCAP that could do real-time tracking of a person’s carbon footprint. This personal carbon trading app helped people to track their contribution towards reducing their carbon footprint in the city.

The government incentivises the residents who were able to maintain their carbon footprint within the target level with virtual euros. Not only the adults but the children of Lahti learn to take care of the environment from a very young age. 

4. Oslo, Norway

Oslo counts Carbon in a very similar way you find yourself counting money due to the annual climate budget that they have in place. Oslo pledged to cut down on its carbon emissions by 95% by 2030 than what it had during 2009. Oslo has given a lot of attention to using sustainable ingredients in its food and in reducing food waste.

In terms of green transport, Oslo is ahead of many other cities. The city has the highest number of electric vehicles per capita. Most places in the city can be reached by walking.

Oslo’s hotels and conference centres are all eco-friendly, maintaining the highest sustainability standards. Oslo has even introduced a congestion charge which has helped in reducing traffic.

The city attracts a large amount of green financing through green bonds, carbon trading and other investment options in companies that try to reduce their carbon footprints. The Government has laid out many initiatives to improve air quality such as introducing the Ultra Low Emission Zone in Central London in 2019.

A ULEZ zone is an area where very few polluting vehicles can drive through. Slowly more ULEZ zones are being introduced in the city. More rideable and walkable lanes are being built.

      1. It depends on a lot of factors and questions. What were the criteria used and how were the relative rankings calculated. The West Coast states are significantly more liberal and more likely to support environmental goals than East Coast states, but it may also be the bias of those who formulated the rankings as well. Regardless, it makes for good discussion and education.

  1. Travelling itself is a adventure. We can learn so many things from different part of the world .
    Thanks for sharing valuable information .

    Keep travelling… Stay healthy… Live life like a kid who can find happiness in everything…

  2. This is such a brilliant post and read. I firmly believe that people can be successful as human beings while still living with limited and finite resources. That includes quality education, financial wealth and community projects, but they must be accompanied by an inclusive vision of social progress. Who wouldn’t want to live in a thriving urban landscape which puts the planet first? Or in a city that provides its citizens with opportunities and inclusivity? Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx
