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 climate target.

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

Aarhus Municipality houses 350.000 people. And we are growing with about 4.000 new inhabitants every year.

And In the past ten years, the city has 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.
