Efficacity and Cerema launch the “sustainable and innovative city” label

Efficacity and Cerema have officially announced the launch of the “Sustainable and Innovative City” label, which will provide a 360° vision of the sustainable and innovative city for local authorities to ensure that their approaches meet best environmental practice.

The “Sustainable and Innovative City” label, in addition to the Climate Air Energy label of ADEME’s Ecological Transition Committed Territories program, brings three new themes:

  • Social cohesion and quality of life,
  • Economic transition,
  • Resilience,
  • And a transversal theme: innovation

Thanks to this label, local authorities will be able to benefit from support in drawing up and improving their sustainable development strategies, steering and evaluating local policies, exchanging best practices between authorities and facilitating access to national or international funding. 

A first pilot stage of the label was carried out in 2021 with 7 local authorities in metropolitan and overseas France, including the urban community of Dunkerque. 

The label is also intended to become part of the international landscape in order to offer local authorities a European approach to strategies and action levers. With this in mind, Efficacity and CEREMA would like to work with European partners to respond to an URBACT call for proposals.
