Targets & evaluation

Our 3 Lighthouse Cities are designed not only to be smart but sustainable. The 12 solutions are designed to meet the three pillars of sustainability: economic, social and environmental concerns. Targets related to jobs, energy usage and transport emissions at project level have been set to monitor to the progress of the project.

The project will undergo continuous evaluation to make sure it is on track.
