Green Leaf Award

The European Green Leaf is a new initiative aimed at cities with a population between 50,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. It is an award that recognises commitment to better environmental outcomes, with a particular accent on efforts that generate green growth and new jobs. The objectives of the European Green Leaf are threefold:

1.  To recognise cities that demonstrate a good environmental record and commitment to generating green growth;

2.  To encourage cities to actively develop citizens' environmental awareness and involvement;
