Copenhagen to go carbon neutral

Copenhagen to go carbon neutral
Copenhagen has outlined its intention to become carbon neutral by 2025.

The Danish capital, which will host the United Nation's Framework Convention of Climate Change later this year, wants to be the first carbon-neutral city in the world.

Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard announced the ambitious plan at the city's new energy-efficient Crown Plaza Hotel.

He revealed that 50 different initiatives will be used to reach the target, with carbon emissions cut by 20 percent by 2015 before the city becomes carbon neutral 10 years later.

Klaus Bondam, deputy mayor for the environment, confirmed the plan to the AFP, explaining that part of the project will focus on renewable energy.

A formal vote on the plan will be undertaken by the city council later in the summer ahead of the UN meeting in December.

This announcement follows a pledge earlier this week from the Maldives to become the world's first carbon neutral country.
