Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Lisbon European Green Capital 'above all' to improve quality of life




Lisbon, Jan.13,2020 (Lusa)–Lisbon’s status as European Green Capital 2020 is to be used "above all "to "do more" to improve the quality of life of cities, its mayor has announced after the launch of the city’s stint with the title.
"The award is not intended to reward the achievements we have achieved,” the mayor, Fernando Medina, stressed. “It is intended above all to be able to use it in order to do more. To do more to win this battle of climate change together, to do more by improving the quality of life of cities, … more in the field of green parks, water, sustainable transport.”
The mayor was speaking to reporters after the opening ceremony of an exhibition to mark the start of Lisbon’s stint as European Green Capital 2020. Official ceremonies later took place downtown in the Eduardo VII park and at the Carlos Lopes Pavilion, attended by Portugal’s president and prime minister and the United Nations secretary-general, António Guterres, who is a former prime minister of Portugal.
Medina said that the municipality knows what it has to do "in terms of climate action and environmental sustainability", which in his view should be "a priority for cities" around the worl.
"While it's true that we're not going to win the battle of climate change here in Lisbon, we have a very clear awareness that we have to do our part," he added.
The mayor also said that "what fundamentally motivated the award” of the title to Lisbon was the municipality’s commitment to "concrete actions … all contributing to environmental sustainability."
He cited the planting of 20,000 trees in in four locations in the city on Sunday, work on a new park at Praça de España, which start on Monday, as well as the renovation of the fleet of bus operator Carris, with the coming into operation of electric vehicles, as well as "the new zero-carbon-emission homes that are under construction.”
Asked about how much spending had been earmarked for the Green Capital initiative, Medina said it was not possible to offer this calculation because there are "thousands of actions that are ongoing or are planned" to be executed this year and next "in a very large collective effort, divided among multiple agents and multiple institutions".
