Valencia is a city making huge strides to tackle the global climate emergency and create a destination that travellers can visit with a clean conscience.

The city has become the first in the world to verify its carbon emissions from tourist activity, the first step in a commitment to become a carbon-neutral destination by 2025. The city already boasts two million square metres of gardens, notably the Turia Gardens and the Viveros, which act as the green lungs of the city absorbing carbon emissions; not to mention the 20 kilometres of European Blue Flag status beaches.
