Targets & evaluation

Our 3 Lighthouse Cities are designed not only to be smart but sustainable. The 12 solutions were 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 were made to monitor to the progress of the project.

The project has been continuously evaluated to make sure the targets are achieved.
