Birmingham named one of the world’s most sustainable cities

Birmingham has been ranked ahead of the likes of New York, Tokyo and Rome in research into the most sustainable cities in the world. The Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index researches the long-term sustainability of 50 global cities and examines the three metrics of social (People), environmental (Planet) and economic (Profit) and placed Birmingham eighteenth.
