Our environment forum supports cities in their efforts to bring about a better environment and work towards achieving sustainable development by sharing knowledge and expertise


For people living in cities, a good quality of life depends largely on the quality of the urban environment. Europe's cities are striving to provide citizens with clean air, safe water and a healthy habitat, including plenty of trees, parks and green spaces. 

Cities also play an active role in helping to stabilise the global climate and adapt to the inevitable consequences of climate change.

Working within our environment forum, our members are formulating practical and innovative ways to integrate environmental considerations into local decision making and urban planning processes.

Our environment forum also works with the EU institutions and national governments to ensure that European environmental legislation and programmes can be implemented successfully at local level, in order to both improve the urban environment and protect the global environment.

2015 priorities:

Healthy city:

  • Exchange of good practices, including on air quality, noise, green areas & biodiversity and spatial planning

  • Influence the EU air quality policy review

  • REFIT of the Environmental Noise Directive

  • Exchange on clean vehicles.

Resource efficiency:

  • Exchange of good practices on circular economy, waste prevention and management, including litter prevention

  • Follow up on the EU circular economy package, in particular influencing the EU waste targets review.

Climate change, energy efficiency and renewable energy:

  • Follow up on the review of the Energy Efficiency Directive

  • Exchanges on smart city projects in the building sector

  • Follow up on the EU and cities’ climate agenda.
