European Union launched at EU Green Week a new self-assessment and benchmarking tool for cities, and a source of information and advice for anyone wanting to learn more about how we can make cities greener and more sustainable. This tool is all about city governance and the approach taken to sustainable urban planning – it is not about quantitative indicators of sustainability, although it will guide you to the best places to find such information.

Cities can use the tool anonymously or, if they wish, register themselves officially, and put themselves on the Green City map, to show others that they are committed to becoming more sustainable, and communicate what they are planning to do next. Registration will also allow them to compare their results to those of other cities, including European Green Capital and Green Leaf winners. The tool has a number of easy-to-use features and functions, and it is flexible too – allowing the user to pick and choose which topics they want to cover, and which functions you would like to use.
