Resource-conserving mobility is a key instrument for meeting the climate protection goals. Vienna is successfully increasing the share of public transport, walking and cycling. At 70 per cent Eco mobility, Vienna ranks among the top cities worldwide. Energy generation is also undergoing positive developments.
