    The mission of Torres Vedras Municipality is to ensure the implementation of laws about the environment, promote sustainable development of the municipality and improving the quality of life of its citizens.
    The Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030 set out the priorities and aspirations for 2030, and constitute a reference to respond to global challenges in line with the objectives and lines of action pursued at national level in the field of environment and sustainable development, in particular those resulting of National Sustainable Development Strategy – ENDS 2015, the National Forest Strategy, the National Strategy for Environmental Education 2020, the National Strategy for the Conservation of Nature and Biodiversity 2030, the National Program for Climate Change 2020/2030 and the National Climate Change Adaptation Program.

    The Municipality of Heraklion is interested to be a partner in your proposal. We would like to have more information and details on the development of your project idea.

    Heraklion is the capital of Crete, one of the most economically active towns in the wider region. Also is fourth largest city in Greece. According to the results of the 2021 census, the municipality’s population is 157.452 people.

    In March 2011, the Municipality of Heraklion signed the Mayors’ Pact, which is an ambitious initiative to involve local authorities and citizens in reducing energy consumption, saving resources and upgrading the quality of life of citizens. This European Commission’s main objective is to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. For this purpose, the Sustainable Energy Action Plan was developed as a tool for identifying and certifying the energy policy of the Municipality and its intention to achieve the above objective. The participation of the Municipality of Heraklion following the proposal of the Energy Centre of the Region of Crete for the Covenant Capacity project, co-funded by the Europe – Intelligent Energy Program, is an important part of the training of the SDAE and aims to support the development of Action Plans On Sustainable Energy in Europe. In recent years, institutional players in the city, as well as public and private organisations have worked together more closely to promote and capitalise on the benefits of the city. Heraklion has an economy with comparative advantages in the agro-food sector and tourism. Emerging sectors of the economy are the Environment / Energy and innovation / new technologies sectors.

    The Heraklion Municipality is currently implementing many projects regarding energy efficiency in public buildy, transportation. Since this is a priority for the municipality, we consider your proposal an assent to the strategic orientation.

    To be able to consider possible collaboration please contact us on
