Climate-neutral City

Mission Statement

With the "Climate Neutral City" mission, the Austrian Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK), in cooperation with the Climate and Energy Fund, is supporting Austrian cities in becoming climate neutral more quickly through research and development.

Pioneer Cities are leading the way together and developing practical, climate-friendly solutions for the energy and mobility transition as well as the circular economy, which are to be implemented and disseminated quickly.

Comprehensive research activities and accompanying actions pave the way for the climate-friendly development of cities. This will lead the way for a better quality of life, health, secure supply and social cohesion for citizens.
