Serving a population of 175,000 people, Almada City Council has responsibility for local environmental actions, planning and management. Specific measures are included in the Local Climate Change Strategy and Almada’s Sustainable Mobility Strategy. As an urban Council with no heavy industry, the major focus in terms of climate change impacts is on mobility and buildings sector. Initiatives such as European Mobility Week, participation forums, Green Week, Children’s Agenda 21 and the compromises towards the EU initiative Covenant of Mayors contribute towards this involvement. In the framework of the Local Climate Change Strategy Almada has promoted several measures such as the implementation of the light rail system, promoting energy efficiency and renewable energies in its buildings and public lighting system and working on sustainable transport solutions. It has also been a pioneer in creating a local fund to finance energy efficiency investments in municipal buildings and equipment named “Almada Less Carbon”.
