Investing in modern infrastructure makes Vienna fit for the future while also guaranteeing high quality of life and excellent ecological standards for generations to come. By 2020, over 1.3 billion Euros will be invested in infrastructure projects to ensure key services like drinking water supply, waste water management and energy provision keep pace with the growth rate projected for the Austrian capital city.

Thanks to the new structure of the Vienna City Administration, all central units and departments providing services of general interest (SGIs, e.g. water, energy supply) are now part of a single Administrative Group. Though the City Administration has always made use of synergies between the different services, their cooperation has now become even more effective. Investments in local services of general interest are known to create jobs and promote local businesses at the same time. Key infrastructure services will therefore remain under public management by the city.
