Energy and Climate

Sustainability at the Heart of Progress: Sustainability and the principles of sustainable development have always been important to the Rīga City Council. The city development planning is already based on it, and work on the implementation of the UN’s sustainable development goals is also ongoing. Rīga is also one of the cities participating in the EU Mission for 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030. To achieve this ambitious goal Rīga is facilitating challenge-driven innovations. The smart city’s focus is on sustainable mobility, green energy, data driven and nature-based solutions.
