Remarks welcoming the Korean Students to Freiburg
12.08.2009 9:30 Rathaus Aula
Welcome to green city, I have prepared some remarks and hope to tell you about our city a little
Scientific analysis has shown that ¾ of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of the city of Freiburg are caused by the energy sector and approximately ¼ by the traffic.
In 1996 the city council of Freiburg passed a resolution to reduce the CO2 emissions by 25% of the 1992 level by the year 2010, obviously we have not reached that target, so we passed an even more ambitious plan: in 2007 the we defined a new very ambitious long-term reduction–goal for 2030 by 40 %. A recent evaluation for the year 2005 led to the result, that Freiburg reduced its CO2-emmissions by 7.3 % in all and by 13 % per capita.
