On the way to fossil freedom

The cities of the world are major contributors to global warming, which means they have a special responsibility and play a major role in the green transformation. Aarhus has therefore set its own ambitious target to reduce its CO2 emissions.

Our vision is a CO2-neutral city by 2030, as a step along the way towards the fossil-free society.

A transformation that will go hand-in hand with commercial development and intelligent urban growth.  

Aarhus is Denmarks second-largest city and the fastest-growing in the country. Within the municipality borders live 340.000 people. In the past ten years, the city has received 15,000 new residents and created 20,000 new jobs, the majority within the knowledge, service and innovation industries.

Being a city of engaged citizens, innovative businesses and students from all over the world, Aarhus is characterized by a strong spirit of cooperation and social cohesion.

In Aarhus, there is a belief that there is always room for improvement, and we do not shy away from taking on big challenges. Whether it is giant leaps in innovation or small steps in efficiency, Aarhus is all about taking what is there and improving it.
