Climate Neutral Berlin


The recommendations for a Berlin Energy and Climate Protection Programme (BEK) ensue from a participatory process with different options for citizens: a forum, workshop series and urban dialogue. These processes, generating multiple proposals, resulted in the final version of the BEK. The roadmap presents numerous measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, revolving around 5 fields of action: energy, buildings and urban development, economy, traffic, private households, and consumption. The social aspect is especially important for the municipality, consisting of communication to and education of the population to promote climate aware behaviour, efficiency, and sufficiency.
