Voluntary Subnational Report
Insights of the Report
The City of Mannheim has developed the “Mannheim 2030” Mission Statement from the 17 UN sustainability goals in a large-scale public participation process. It sets out how we intend to live in Mannheim in 2030 and in doing so live up to our global responsibilities. We will regularly report the progress we have made in this regard to our citizens as well as the United Nations in a Voluntary Local Review (VLR). In this first VLR, we report on how we are achieving the “Mannheim 2030” Mission Statement with a description of the associated indicators and the measures we are already implement-ing to this end.

Carbon Footprint per capita
With a population of more than 300,000 made up of people from over 160 different nations, Mannheim is not only the second largest city in Baden-Württemberg: it is also wonderfully diverse, lively and colourful. A big city, a metropolis in which you can feel at home, characterised on the one hand by unpretentious authenticity and on the other by multiculturalism. With 17 city districts – the majority of which are located close to the water – and a city centre laid out in a grid of squares, Mannheim is the metropolitan region’s most important city.
