Zero Emissions Cities

WBCSD’s Zero Emissions Cities (ZEC) project creates value for cities and solution providers by stimulating global collaborative action to successfully create zero emissions cities. In this project a consortium of solution providers collaborates with city officials and local stakeholders to reach zero emissions in cities focusing on smart mobility/logistics, buildings, waste and energy infrastructures.

The ZEC project has initiated three pilot cities in 2015 in The Netherlands (Amsterdam Zuidoost), in the UK (Birmingham Smithfield market) and in the US (San Diego). More cities will be added in 2017.
