Being a green city is all about sustainability and improving your carbon footprint, and these five are putting themselves on the fast track to becoming sustainable-carbon neutral.

  • Vancouver, Canada has been recognized for trying to make the Winter Olympic games sustainable, but it’s their day-to-day focus that really allows this Canadian city to earn its ranking.
  • Malmo, Sweden is known for its parks, but also innovates in its sustainable urban spaces. 
  • Curitiba, Brazil features great transit and parks that are trimmed by sheep.
  • Portland, Oregon focuses upon alternative transit with light-rail and extensive bike path networks
  • Reykjavik, Iceland runs entirely on green power.
