Berliner Nachhaltigkeitsprofil

Purpose and goals of the Berlin Sustainability Profile

  • To provide a new perspective on urban development, cutting across traditional strategies and plans
  • To identify the city’s key future strengths and talents
  • To foster and encourage engagement in the city
  • To focus on existing projects and initiatives that can help shape a sustainable future


The three faces of the city (The Enabling Berlin, The Productive Berlin, The Accessible Berlin) form the core of the Sustainability Profile.

  • Each represents one aspect of how Berlin approaches sustainability
  • They demonstrate typical Berliner approaches for how to link traditional sustainability topics
  • They build on existing approaches and practices while identifying future challenges
  • Each face of the city is illustrated by three practices that provide concrete examples
