Hoi An has done some climate-smart thinking to make this tourist destination more resilient. By 2030, it intends to reduce carbon emissions by 20% compared to 2016 levels.

The city is retrofitting its popular community areas with solar panels and introducing a fleet of 50 electric vehicles to be used as taxis for the growing number of tourists to the city. Through awareness-building initiatives, the entire city is being motivated to reduce emissions from waste.

WHY WE LOVE CITIES

Over half the world’s population now live in cities, and they generate over 70% of our climate footprint. But cities also offer an immense opportunity to create better places to live while contributing to a healthier planet in the process. Through better transport, green buildings, harnessing the power of nature, wasting less and loving more, cities can lead the way to a climate-friendly future.

We love to get around

Our participating cities are transforming the way people travel. For sustainable cities, improving the way people get around also means reducing the amount of energy we use. Transportation accounts for 25% of global energy use so cities are

finding ways to change that. Car-free and car-restricted areas, electrification, more public transport, promoting cycling and pedestrian-friendly streets are just some of the better ways to travel that will lead to a healthier environment.

We love the power of nature

Our participating cities love the power of nature and are becoming hotspots for renewable energy solutions. Right now, city dwellers are responsible for over 70% of our planet’s energy-related carbon emissions. But by becoming trailblazers for renewables, cities have

the opportunity to change that. From solar water heating, geothermal heating, biogas, wind farms, solar electricity and smart grids, renewables don’t affect the air we breathe, our water supplies and our climate system. And that means healthy, happier people.

We love green buildings

Our participating cities are at the forefront of improving the places that we live and work. Buildings define the character of our cities. But it’s not just about what they look like, it’s about how they work too. Buildings use one third of the world’s energy, and in bigger

cities they account for up to 80% of carbon emissions. By championing new designs, incentives and standards, cities are leading the way to more energy-efficient homes, and inspiring a global trend where new buildings become energy producers rather than energy consumers.

We love clean living

By wasting less and loving more, our participating cities are leading the way to smart waste solutions. Like turning waste into resource. Biogas, district heating, compost, fertilizer, irrigation, and recycled goods all come from waste and

waste water. And making these resources creates jobs too. By minimizing and trapping waste for material and energy, smarter urban waste management improves the economy, the environment and promotes clean living – all at the same time.

We love good food

From top restaurants to cool street stalls, food is a big part of what defines a city. It’s also becoming a big part of the sustainability journey. Climate-smart food procurement and the promotion of more veggie based diets addresses food’s climate

impact as well as health issues; urban farming is improving food security; while hospitals and schools are recycling packaging and composting leftovers so nothing goes to waste. The more cities use the power of food, the better cities will become.
