The forum for the Future have just released their Sustainable Cities Index, and Newcastle has been named as Britain’s greenest city for the second year running.
Moves to install electric vehicle charging points and its support of clean technology firms helped keep hold of the trophy.
Peter Madden, chief executive of Forum for the Future, said: “Cities are having to count every penny so it’s essential that they invest wisely for long-term success.
“Leaders like Newcastle and Leicester are developing plans to run services in smarter ways, tackle challenges like climate change and secure the jobs of the future.”
