In fact, it is the only city in Europe to have been invited to be a member of the European Climate Forum (EFC). As a SmartCity, Bergen is highly focused on maximum energy efficiency and being completely carbon neutral in the near future; it’s no surprise that they apply the same progressive mindset to their procurement process.
