City of Metz

City introduction

Metz Métropole includes 44 municipalities around Metz. Metz gained its nickname of La Ville Verte (green city), as it has extensive open grounds and public gardens. The historic city centre has one of the largest commercial pedestrian areas in France.
Metz Métropole is resolutely committed to sustainable development and "human ecology". It offers ambitious initiatives based on wide consultation with its member municipalities and the citizens.

With the development of a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (Plan climat), Metz Métropole is clearly committed to sustainable development and combating climate change.
Each year, a resident of Greater Metz emits on average 15.3 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere, mainly through car travel and insufficient insulation of their homes.
By voting for their Plan climat, Metz Métropole has just started an ambitious approach, which goes far beyond its legal obligations as it envisages nothing less than to reduce by 75% the emissions of greenhouse gas by 2050.
