Turin, the most environmentally friendly city in Italy

Torino I

Turin has been declared Italy’s most environmentally sustainable city.

The northern metropolis came top of a ranking compiled by the Euromobility association ahead of Venice in second place and Milan in third.

The capital Rome came 20th out of the 50 cities surveyed by Euromobility, while the southern cities of Campobasso and Foggia came bottom.

Turin prevailed thanks to its good public-transport system, its bike-sharing and car-sharing schemes and the city’s high number of low-environmental-impact vehicles, thanks in part to public incentives to use cars powered by natural gas rather than petrol. Euromobility’s Scientific Director Lorenzo Bertuccio said that Italy on the whole was making progress in adopting greener transport systems.

”Steps forward are being made on the road of environmentally friendly transport,” Bertuccio said.

”Over the last year there has been a big increase in the use of bike sharing and in the number of methane and liquid propane gas cars”.
