Copenhagen no. 15 on Cities in Motion Index 2015

Copenhagen ranks number 15 on the global Cities in Motion Index 2015 by IESE Business School, performing very well on governance, urban planning and transport & mobility.

“The ranking is a testament to Copenhagen’s strong reputation as a city with no corruption and no red tape as well as to the city’s great infrastructure for vehicles and bicycles and its public transportation system both increasing the living standard and being vital to the city’s long-term sustainability”, says Marianna Lubanski, Investment Promotion Director, Copenhagen Capacity.

The Cities in Motion Index (CIMI) seeks to allow people and governments to understand a city’s performance through 10 fundamental dimensions: Governance, Urban Planning, Public Management, Technology, The Environment, International Outreach, Social Cohesion, Mobility & Transport, Human Capital, and The Economy.

Copenhagen is placed in the “challenging city” category, consisting of cities that have improved their position at a brisk pace and are already in the high zone.
