Copenhagen is widely considered one of the greenest capitals in the world. Chosen as the host of the Global Summit on Climate Change, the city served as a model for the 170 countries that attended.
Policies in place have already helped the city move closer to this goal. Copenhagen has invested heavily in clean-energy technology.
Once based on coal and oil, the city is now run almost entirely on natural gas. Denmark is also home to 5,600 windmills that supply around 10 per cent of the country’s electricity.
