Just a few weeks after once again being crowned the world’s most liveable city, Melbourne has claimed another top international award.
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle recently accepted a C40 and Siemens Climate Leadership Award, according to a September 5 media release, which further highlights the city’s reputation as a top place to live.
Melbourne was selected ahead of Berlin and New York as the winner of the Energy Efficient Built Environment category due to its maintained efforts in promoting a sustainable living environment, for example its sustained retrofitting initiatives and implementing minimum standards for new dwellings.
The city’s pioneering role in sustainable urban living was well recognized by the Lord Mayor. “We know that sustainability and liveability are inexorably linked. For us to maintain a high standard of living we need to set the highest standards in sustainability,” he said. “Every piece of research tells me that a sustainable city with high quality of life will attract the best and brightest and that’s what drives innovation and economic growth.”
