CONCERTO Brochure: A Cities’ Guide to a Sustainable Built EnvironmentThe recently-unveiled brochure – [A Cities’ Guide to a Sustainable Built Environment->http://www.concertoplus.eu/cms/index2.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=dd_download&fid=251&format=html] – developed in the framework of the [CONCERTO initiative->http://www.concertoplus.eu/], outlines, in the span of 68 pages, examples of sustainable energy planning, financing, public engagement and emission monitoring activities undertaken by a host of cities and communities having cooperated in the project.
A great number of the local authorities showcased in the brochure are Covenant of Mayors Signatories including – to name just a few- Växjö, Nantes, Amsterdam , Delft , Sofia , Milton Keynes and Lyon.
The success stories notably seek to demonstrate how the energy efficiency and performance of urban buildings can be improved. All projects share the common objective of the Covenant of Mayors: to reduce CO2 emissions in the most cost-effective manner while at the same time improving the quality of life of European citizens.
Over five million people in 58 cities and communities in 23 European countries have benefited from the CONCERTO initiative since its launch in 2005. A total of 1.83 0000 square metres of building space has been newly constructed or renovated to date, delivering a saving of 530.000 tons of CO2 .
