  • State of the environment and sustainable development policies in major European cities: air quality a concern - Information center
    cities out of ten in certain places especially where traffic is particularly dense concentrations are recorded well in excess of the threshold of 40 µg m3 Finally we also note that the majority of cities studied in particular Antwerp and Brussels have or are in the process of adopting an air quality plan Climate change renewable energies As for CO2 emissions we observe in contrast that 21 of the 32 cities questioned including Antwerp and Brussels have fixed clear reduction targets sometimes even more ambitious than national targets Indeed Berlin and London plan by 2020 to have reduced their CO2 emissions by 25 and 20 respectively against national targets of 20 and 12 5 It is to be noted in this regard that on Tuesday 29 January the European Commission launched the Covenant of Mayors an initiative aimed at making cities first line actors in the fight against global warming and the implementation of sustainable energy policies Almost 100 cities throughout Europe including 15 capitals have already shown their support for this initiative The cities and regions which have signed the Convenant of Mayors officially undertake to reduce their CO2 emissions by 20 by the year 2020 However whilst some major cities like Vienna Munich Barcelona and the Greater Lyon conurbation set examples when it comes to solar energy installation of thermal or photovoltaic panels on public buildings this route is broadly under used in many cities Still regarding energy collective heating systems are clearly more widespread in Northern Europe for instance with a cover of 60 to 70 of the population in Stockholm Gothenburg and Aalborg 80 in Riga and Tampere and even almost 100 in Helsinki and Copenhagen A general trend towards taking better account of these issues is real however more than a half of the cities studied state that they have carried out energy audits of some of their public buildings whilst 22 of them indicate that they have taken concrete actions to reduce their energy consumption Finally we would also point out the recourse to LED which are less energy consuming instead of classic incandescent bulbs for traffic lights in some major cities In this regard Oslo sets a clear example with 100 use of LED followed by Greater Lyon 61 and Gothenburg 42 In Antwerp where the system is being tested 1 of traffic lights are now equipped with LED Waste management With the exception of Dresden none of the cities studied had achieved the European target of 1 kg of waste produced annually per inhabitant The average quantity of waste per inhabitant household and other waste before sorting and recycling amounts to 501 kg We should nonetheless emphasise that thanks to their selective collection systems some cities such as Antwerp manage to reduce their residual waste to 300 kg or less i e far less than the 500 kg of residual waste per inhabitant in some cities in Southern Europe like Naples Rome Patra and Lefkosia With regard to water purification the situation
