Climate Action in Bonn


A local approach to a global challenge

The City of Bonn has been committed to climate protection since the mid-1990s and takes responsibility to locally combat or limit the causes and consequences of climate change. Ultimately, the incentive was also due to the establishment of the UN Climate Secretariat in Bonn. Important steps into this direction were an initial energy and climate protection scheme, detailed CO2 accounting, and a comprehensive action plan.

The aim is

  • to reduce energy input
  • to use energy efficiently
  • to replace fossil energy sources by renewable energy sources and
  • to reduce CO2 emissions through sustainable mobility

At the beginning of this decade, questions of resilience to climate change and its effects were increasingly brought to the fore. In Bonn, due to its location in the Rhine valley, the impacts of climate change go along with an especially problematic urban climate.

In order to coordinate local climate action and climate adaptation activities, the City Administration has set up its own climate coordination center. With municipal energy supplier Stadtwerke Bonn (SWB), it has a strong control instrument for sustainable energy and mobility development.
