Copenhagen, known and acknowledged as a clean, safe and sustainable city, is consistently ranked in the top of city and climate indexes.

Once again, an index has ranked Copenhagen in the top – the City Momentum Index (CMI) ranks Copenhagen as the forth out of 12 most dynamic European cities.

The index is published annually and focuses on the cities’ ability to gain long-term momentum and adjust during fast-paced socio-economic changes.

Copenhagen is highlighted due to its strong environmental agenda and its plans to be the world’s first carbon neutral capital city by 2025 through retrofitting, more wind turbines and changing transport habits.

Copenhagen and Scandinavian capitals among world’s most open and liquid markets
Copenhagen (4th) is ranked before the two other Scandinavian capitals – Stockholm (5th) and Oslo (8th) – in the European Top12.

Together with strong high-tech sectors, all three Scandinavian capitals score highly on liveability measures. Dynamic, sustainable and scalable, they are attracting high levels of migration and investment.
