Why do we need smart and sustainable cities?

Cities consume


of the world’s energy

Cities produce over


of global waste

Cities emit between


of greenhouse gas emissions

Cities account for less


of the Earth’s surface

It’s complicated, interconnected, technical, social and human all at the same time! But cities need to integrate smart technology and sustainability fast. Cities consume a majority of the planet’s resources and generate between 60-80% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Leadership and innovation from cities are needed to change this.
But smart and sustainable cities also make significant improvements to the quality of life, health, inclusion and investment.

IRIS Smart Cities

IRIS smart cities is a European funded project delivering solutions tackling key areas of transition in our cities.

The open-source resources, technical insights and testimonials made available through this showcase website are designed to share our journey and knowledge. We hope it can help inspire and equip others to do the same.
