Mitigation

Mitigation: to reduce greenhouse gases by 45% compared to 2005

The objective is to decelerate global warming. To this end, Barcelona is working on a process of energy transition and a change in its city model.

Action is being taken to foster energy saving and increase energy efficiency, to renovate buildings and to achieve a greater production of local, renewable energy. We are also promoting more sustainable mobility, where priority is given to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This is why the general public has a vital role to play in the fight against climate change.

The City Council has drawn up a mitigation plan, which complements the Climate Plan, in that it details the deployment of mitigation measures that should allow us to achieve the Climate Plan’s reduction objectives.

The City Council is working on a mitigation plan to be included in the Climate Plan and which will set out more detailed measures to reach this objective.
