Monaco is not always the first destination that springs to mind when visitors consider sustainability, according to However, Visit Monaco’s newly-launched ‘Green is the New Glam’ campaign is working hard to change these perceptions as the Principality aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent before 2030, compared with 1990 levels, and reach total carbon neutrality by 2050.

“To ensure these goals are reached, Monaco has introduced several initiatives encouraging tourists and locals alike to be more eco-friendly. Seventeen bike stations, a solar-powered bus boat, a dozen hybrid buses and two Tesla-compatible charging stations mean that eco-conscious travellers can still experience the thrill of Monaco’s iconic roads and hairpin bends in style while reducing their carbon footprint. Monaco’s hotels are also getting on-board and participating in the government-funded ‘Smart+’ programme,” the blog says.
