Ghent's climate actions
Our projects and initiatives
Ghent as a Climate City brings together all those who collaborate on combatting climate change, in different domains: futureproof buildings, renewable energy, food, mobility and greening. From large-scale industrial projects to small-scale start-ups and citizen initiatives, it's all there!
Our main ambitions
Reducing CO2 by 40% and making Ghent 'climate proof': creating a city that is able to cope with the consequences of climate change such as drought, heat and flooding.
Addressing climate emergency and sustainability via the UN Sustainable development goals.
- Creating a climate-neutral city: a city that runs entirely on renewable energy.
The Ghent Climate plan 2020-2025
The City of Ghent has compiled all objectives and actions in a third climate plan for the period 2020-2025. Each local resident, company, knowledge institution and public organisation has an essential role to play.
