Climate Change ⸻

Climate change poses one of the greatest threats to cities and modern societies, as it has numerous and far-reaching consequences. To mitigate its impacts, the adoption of environmentally friendly policies is necessary.

The city of Trikala is embarking on its green transition journey, aiming to minimize its carbon footprint and aspiring to become one of the first Greek cities committed to implementing a specific strategy towards climate neutrality. This initiative significantly improves the quality of life for citizens and creates the conditions for a sustainable city and a dynamic local economy.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

The Municipality of Trikala is committed to taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, implementing initiatives aligned with environmental protection and the sustainability of the local ecosystem. With this perspective, the Municipality conducted a greenhouse gas emissions inventory for the reference year 2019, aiming to identify emission sources and develop strategies for their reduction.

This inventory serves as a crucial tool for shaping policies and measures that will contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our local area. Based on the results of this inventory, the Municipality can identify key sectors of activity associated with high emissions, as well as prioritize potential sources that need to be addressed.

Following the analysis of the inventory findings, specific measures are proposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These measures include promoting the use of renewable energy sources in buildings and infrastructure,  promoting public transportation and electromobility, as well as encouraging citizens and businesses to adopt environmentally friendly practices.
