  • an energy neutral area
  • a climate-proof area
  • an attractive area, through sustainable energy, optimum greening, water retention and clean personal mobility

Within the Smart Sustainable Districts programme, the Municipality of Utrecht, Jaarbeurs and SSD-partners aim to co-develop, pilot and test new integrated solutions for the Utrecht The New Centre. These solutions will lead to factor four improvements in a range of climate change and sustainability measures. Solutions, improvements and lessons learned from these integrated approaches will be shared to help enable smarter, more sustainable districts worldwide.
