About Green Cities


Green Cities is a close and binding partnership between the Danish municipalities of Albertslund, Allerød, Herning, Kolding and Copenhagen.

The Green Cities Partnership was founded in 2000.


A Green Cities municipality does its utmost to maintain, protect and improve the environment and works towards creating a sustainable local community in the long term.

The Green Cities Partnership is built on six common themes and a series of exacting goals, towards the achievement of which member municipalities are obliged to work. The Green Cities Partnership is based on a partnership agreement, which was approved in 2012.

The Green Cities’ results are collated in a joint annual report, which is available here (only in Danish). The annual report provides overarching, thorough and documented insight into the municipalities' progress towards reaching each of the goals. The report also accounts for how the individual municipality is working towards achieving these goals.
