Environment and Climate

Detailed knowledge of the city's environment and climate for planning and prioritizing efforts


Copenhagen has ambitious goals when it comes to climate and the environment. Detailed knowledge of the environmental impact of urban development is therefore essential. Here, new types of data can complement existing models with nuanced information about local conditions, so the efforts can be optimized. At the same time, the monitoring can help identify the environmental impact of municipal actions in the long term, and thus qualify political decisions. The theme will help to find new ways to reduce CO2-emissions and ensure energy optimisation.

For example, we are working to find new solutions for:

• Prioritising traffic

• Managing rainwater

• Targeted data support of efforts in the climate plan

• Management information, including efficacy and evidence based on data collection
