Latest News / Cities in UK and Netherlands Named Amoung Most Sustainable


Cities in the Netherlands and in the UK have been named as the most sustainable in the word by the Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index.

The Index, which judged world-leading cities on their sustainability within the context of profit, environment and people, placed London 2nd, Amsterdam 4th, and Rotterdam 6th.

The Netherlands was the only country to have two cities featured in the Top Ten of the Index, which named Germany’s Frankfurt as the most sustainable city in the world.

Rotterdam was named overall best in the ‘People’ category, which included measurements such as literacy rates and work-life quality.

Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Jakarta in Indonesia also featured in the list of leading cities, in 26th and 45th place respectively.

Commenting on the Index, John Batten, Global Cities Director at Arcadis, said, “Our world is changing at a faster pace than ever before. Developing technology, population growth and the emergence of a truly global economy mean that the notion of national borders is becoming less relevant. Instead, we see the concept of the ‘global city’ taking hold.”
