The Swiss city of Lausanne has today published a plan to become carbon neutral by 2030.
As a pioneering city in the field of sustainability and energy policy, Lausanne intends to play a driving and inciting role in the fight against global warming and set itself a goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. To achieve this, the Municipality proposes by 2021 to develop a climate plan created by experts and designed as a strategic and cross-cutting instrument, including both emission reduction and climate change adaptation measures.
In the immediate future, the City plans to strengthen measures in areas such as energy, mobility and construction.
More than 300 million Swiss Francs (£250 million) will be invested by 2030 in the renovation and insulation of school buildings.
