Green Amsterdam

Often cited as one of the greenest cities in Europe, Amsterdam is famed not only for its abundance of parks and green spaces, but also its eco-friendly attitude to transport and daily life. With cycling being the city's main form of transportation, higher than average rates of recycling and a real shift towards circular economy across all industries, Amsterdam is truly a green city that is increasingly putting more emphasis on social impact.
