KLiP I (1999-2009)

In 1999, the City of Vienna created a particularly ambitious and committed environmental programme with its Climate Protection Programme (KLiP). "KLiP Wien" is the most comprehensive environmental programme ever launched by the city. The aim to avoid 2,6 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) was reached in 2006.

The 36 KLiP programmes included a total of 241 individual measures in the areas of "district heating and electricity generation", "housing", "businesses", "city administration" and "mobility". The KLiP Programme has not only been developed to reduce greenhouse gases and improve the quality of life in Vienna. Its many activities also strengthen Vienna's economy through the creation and protection of jobs.
