Malmö awarded in Brussels for its outstanding mobility plan

On 20 April, our member city of Malmö (Sweden) was announced by Director-General for DG MOVE, Mr. Henrik Hololei, as the winner of the 4th Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning Award.

The jury particulary appreciated how the city is committed in an integrated planning process that focuses on creating an efficient multimodal network, as well as on social and economic factors. Thus, accessibility for different social groups or a clear and consistent urban freight policy go hand in hand with the development of a new tram and hybrid busses system.

With a strong ambition, Malmö is an outstanding example of a city which has developed, years after years, a holistic and realistic vision for its mobility policy.

As a signatory of the Covenant of Mayors since 2008, Malmö is committed to reduce its CO2 emissions of 40% by 2020. And according to its baseline emission inventory, it appeared in 2009 that transportation was responsible for almost half of the total amount of the greenhouse gases produced in Malmö !
Definitely worth the efforts !

Each year, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) Award highlights a different aspect of mobility planning. The 2013 award recognised successful territorial and policy integration, while the 2014 edition looked at monitoring implementation with an eye to making improvements. The 2015 edition focused on multimodality and intermodality in sustainable urban mobility planning.

The other finalists for the SUMP Award, our member city of Utrecht (The Netherlands) and Vienna (Austria), were complimented for their own work in integrating different transport modes. Mr Hololei affirmed that “Europe can and should be a world leader in sustainable mobility solutions”..
