Sustainable cities and municipalities

Municipal enterprises are the central infrastructure service providers in Germany—in many areas, they bear responsibility for the careful and sustainable use of resources.

The EU Commission's Green Deal offers both great opportunities and challenges. Even more so since—in order to achieve the targets and objectives in the future—action must be taken now. IFAT’s top-class supporting program promises orientation, with best practice examples from a wide range of countries and municipalities.

In the professional supporting program, you will find the whole range of municipal topics. Future and practically oriented. Use our experts’ input and the experience of other countries and municipalities for the advancement of your administration and infrastructure.

What is it about? For example, sustainability in road and sewer construction, construction standards of the future, water and waste management and environmentally friendly winter road maintenance. But also about digitalization: from smart water supply, Digital Green Tech to digital solutions for waste collection and transport—the future of cities and communities is smart.
