Marseille is Named the Least Favourable City for Eco-Conscious Businesses

Certain global cities present hurdles for eco-conscious businesses. Marseille, plagued by the highest pollution score and the worst air quality among analysed cities, shows stark contrast to Vienna’s environmental excellence.

Los Angeles and Barcelona also struggle, with LA displaying the second-worst pollution score and the U.S. having one of the lowest sustainable development rankings. Barcelona suffers from high pollution levels and a paucity of cycling routes, ranking 11th from the bottom among analysed cities.

UK’s Green Leaders: Oxford and Cambridge

Oxford and Cambridge, known for academic prowess, are also trailblazers in sustainable practices. This is evidenced by the fact that their businesses choose more sustainably sourced print from the Solopress Green range than any other city. Oxford leads with 13.2% of businesses investing in the Solopress Green range, followed by Cambridge with 11.6%.

Oxford and Cambridge both champion cycling as a primary transportation mode, and have established ambitious clean energy initiatives, with Oxford’s Energy Superhub Oxford project and Cambridge’s ‘Cambridge Sustainable City‘ program leading the way. By integrating these sustainability efforts, both cities offer a thriving environment for eco-conscious businesses and serve as models for sustainable development in the UK.
