Sustainability agenda

The Sustainable Agenda describes a number of goals designed to speed up the move towards a sustainable Amsterdam. By 2020, the city will generate 20% more renewable energy and use 20% less energy per resident than in 2013; improve air quality, by putting as many zero-emissions vehicles on the road as possible; establish a circular economy with new forms of production, distribution and consumption; make Amsterdam ‘climate proof’ by 2020; and ensure that 65% of household waste is collected separately by 2020.
