European Green Capital Award for 2013: Nantes, France

Nantes was chosen for the 2013 Award on the strength of its public transport policy. It was the first city in France to successfully re-introduce electric tramways, and plans to encourage bicycle and public bus infrastructure. The Award, begun in 2010 by the European Commission, recognizes a consistent record and a commitment to future goals and ambitions for environmental improvement and sustainable development.  See: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/europeangreencapital/winning-cities/2013-nantes/index.html
