The City of Nuremberg is currently presenting its sustainable development goals with a series of lectures, workshops and digital events entitled ‘Think Globally, Act Locally‘. We hope to introduce the measures we have undertaken to local citizens and interested parties through a series of events running from May till September. In 2019 Nuremberg City Council declared climate protection as the central future mission of our city. To this end we published our ‘Climate Protection Roadmap 2020-2030‘ in June 2020. This publication sets out our commitment to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These goals will be the subject of their own presentation as part of our lecture series. Forefront amongst these goals is the promise to cut emissions by 60% by 2030 (compared to 1990 levels).
However, while a significant portion of CO2 emissions are caused by building use, the roadmap’s updated calculations reveal that the city wide rate of renovation currently lies at 1%. This proves a large barrier to our ambitious goals. To combat this and escalate the rate of meaningful energy renovation Nuremberg is funding the Horizon 2020 project procuRE in conjunction with five other cities. As a procuring partner, one of the demonstration sites will be a school in Nuremberg. Successful results can then be adopted more widely to increase the speed of building stock renewal, enabling Nuremberg to reach energy targets.
One German language and two English language OMC events will take place in June and July for interested suppliers to learn more and shape the tender.
