European Green City Index

A report on the greenness of 30 European cities European Green City Index (55 pages pdf) has been made available by its sponsor, Siemens, at the COP 15 climate change discussions. The host city, Copenhagen, coincidentally had the best overall rating, although challenged in several categories by Oslo (first in CO2 emissions and energy) , Amsterdam (first in water and waste) and Stockholm (first in Transportation, second in CO2, buildings, and Air Quality).

A category by category and city by city analysis is included which lets you see where other cities would fit, as well as what characteristics to emulate.

Additional commentary is available at European Green City Index Released: City of Copenhagen Ranks Highest, Kiev at Bottom (Sustainable Cities Collective blog).
