The team was created to realise the requirements of implementing the Low carbon economy plan and ensuring a correct delivery date, as well as monitoring of the plan’s implementation. The team began its work in May 2016 and was created through an ordinance of the City’s Presidents. Creating a team that has a specific goal in common, which is what it strives to achieve, makes the team members more involved and interested in the initiative. Thanks to the cooperation and involvement of the team members, many pro-ecological initiatives and investments will be realised. The realisation of the tasks included in the low carbon economy plan will result in: a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, decreased final energy consumption via improving energy efficiency, increasing the share of renewable energy sources in total energy use, and improving air quality within the city’s area. The results will be observed in the next 4 years.
