Sustainable Business Park

The Frankfurt city council decided in March 2012 to develop a sustainable industrial park. A feasibility study, which was drawn up under the direction of the city planning office, first clarifies the possibilities of implementation in Frankfurt, proposes a model location and recommends measures. The study proposes a framework for action in which the city of Frankfurt am Main can create a cooperative framework. An important interface is site management , which interlinks urban and private engagement. Climate change management will require action on energy efficiency and resource protection order, together with interested companies. In addition to advising on funding options and certification procedures, local networking among companies is an important task to exploit synergies economically. The unsealing and greening of unused areas, holistic water management or area-specific waste and material flow management are further topics.
