Latest News / UK city named among world’s most sustainable


London london 2

London, UK has been named one of the world’s the most sustainable cities 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 5th.

It was the only Shell LiveWIRE country to have a city featured in the Top Ten of the Index, which named Switzerland’s Zurich as the most sustainable city in the world.

Netherlands cities Rotterdam and Amsterdam were named in the Top Ten of the ‘People’ category, which included measurements such as literacy rates and work-life quality, in 2nd and 7th place. The category was led by Seoul, South Korea.

Another Shell LiveWIRE country city, Rome in Italy, was named the 7th most sustainable city in the world in the 'Planet' category – performing well in sustainable energy, waste management and air pollution.

Commenting on the Index, John Batten, Global Director of Water and Cities at Arcadis, said, “All cities continue to make progress on their missions to become more sustainable economically, environmentally and for the good of their inhabitants. As the world continues to become more reliant on its urban centers, it is our hope that city leaders and industry find this a valuable tool in assessing their priorities and pathways to urban sustainability for the good of all.”
