In this ranking, 23 European cities are evaluated in nine categories. These measures include technical and economic measures, as well as sustainable transport measures. Also emission reduction, modal split and transparency are being looked at.
The winner of this round of the city ranking is the Swiss city of Zurich. It is followed closely by Copenhagen, Vienna and Stockholm. Berlin, the winner of the last ranking in 2011 finished fifth. None of the 23 cities reached grade A, which is awarded for cities that score at least 90% of the maximum number of points. The last two places in the ranking are Lisbon and ultimately Luxembourg. A total of six cities failed with an F grade.
For each of the 9 category of measures, cities could be attributed ++ (very good), + (good), 0 (satisfactory), - (fair), or – (fail).
