Benchmark for active, healthy, sustainable municipal mobility

A coalition made up of the Netherlands Society for Nature and Environment (Natuur & Milieu), the Dutch Cyclists’ Union (Fietsersbond), Friends of the Earth-Netherlands (Milieudefensie), STREETSforALL (MENSenSTRAAT), the public transport passengers’ association Rover, the Lung Foundation (Longfonds) and the Dutch Hikers’ Association (Wandelnet) are collaborating on a project to encourage municipalities to draw up ‘green council agreements’.

CE Delft was commissioned by the coalition to develop a benchmark for 30 municipalities, summarizing their current status when it comes to active, healthy, sustainable mobility and giving an indication of the need and opportunities for moving towards a more sustainable urban environment with improved quality of life.

A Dutch-language report on the overall results is available here.

The results of the benchmark for active, healthy, sustainable municipal mobility for 30 municipalities can be consulted here (in Dutch):
