Abstract

In 2012, the Copenhagen City administration released the 2012 CPH2025 Climate Plan, thereby becoming the first capital city in the world to commit itself to achieving carbon dioxide (CO2) neutrality by 2025. The plan envisaged collaborative efforts by various stakeholders including city authorities, the private sector, utilities, universities, and citizens. The climate plan was an important element of the green growth strategy of the city.The strategy also aimed at making the city an important player in the growing global market for green technology. The deployment of the technology and implementation of measures were expected to generate jobs and income to the city as well.
