In Albertslund, protecting the nature and minimizing the environmental aspects of the city's urban activities are of key importance.
In an effort to make the city as sustainable as possible, Albertslund has undertaken many projects, including the development of a green accounting system to monitor heat, electricity and water, production of waste and CO2 emissions of the city's public buildings, residences, and businesses.
Albertslund Municipality does its utmost to maintain, protect and improve the environment and works towards creating a sustainable local community in the long term.
Moving into the future, Albertslund hopes to be a hub for Smart City innovation that will promote advancements in technologies that will help make the city more efficient and sustainable.
The city also promotes healthy and sustainable lifestyles for its residents that lead to environmental benefits, like bicycling rather than driving personal vehicles and outdoor activites on the green areas surrounding the city. Security, clean air and welfare has a high political priority.
