Climate Action Plan

The climate action plan is part of the Athens Resilience Strategy. Mitigation actions include, among others, raising public awareness for rational energy use and no- and low-cost measures at households. Actions for adaptation include: 1) Green and Blue infrastructure - maintaining and increasing green spaces, but also alternative ways of greening (e.g. vertical green techniques and inclusion of water use in urban planning); and 2) Built Environment - using sustainable materials (e.g. cool pavements, materials with low embodied energy, and bioclimatic design to reduce air temperatures and improve microclimatic conditions). Mitigation actions include 1) reducing energy consumption in municipal buildings and facilities and 2) reducing fuel use in buildings and the municipal fleet.
