Carbon neutral decision in Denmark

Carbon neutral decision in Denmark
The second biggest city in Denmark is set to decide whether to push on with plans to become entirely carbon neutral.

Aarhus has previously outlined its ambition to achieve the status by 2030 and a vote in September will determine whether the project is financed.

City council representatives will make the decision on the £8.1 million investment plan to begin next year.

Installing electric car charge spots and renovating inefficient municipal buildings are among the schemes being proposed.

Claus Nickelsen, leader of Aarhus' department for nature and environment, told the Guardian: "Aarhus wants to manage its own house by carrying demonstration projects into effect and by influencing the national legislation."

Other green ideas for the city include creating a new railway network, adding new bike paths and discouraging people from driving.

The Danish government has named six locations as eco-cities. These include the capital, Copenhagen, which has set a target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2025.
