With this in mind, the Group has implemented broad environmental projects and concrete actions for Copenhagen. AFA JCDecaux has ISO-14001 certification in Denmark, and has set environmental targets with a view to reducing its environmental footprint to a maximum: a 49% reduction in the total energy consumption of street furniture in the city of Copenhagen, electric vehicles for the maintenance teams, including electrical bicycles for cleaning the furniture in the city centre. The maintenance will be by use of rainwater for washing and cleaning while some busshelters will have solarpanels installed to lower energy consumption.
We will establish a Sustainability Board with representation from the City, AFA JCDecaux and external moderators – to spot and integrate new innovations, materials and technologies to pursue Copenhagen's goal: becoming the world’s first CO2 neutral capital be 2025.Anders AxelsenManaging Director of AFA JCDecaux Denmark
In addition, materials that are environmentally robust and of high quality will be used, drivers will receive training in eco-driving, logistical routes will be optimised, maintenance products will be environmentally-friendly, etc.
