Metrotenerife has received the second prize from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE-UN) for its contributions to improve the mobility and sustainability. The ‘Building Back Better’ awards recognize international infrastructures that contribute to the sustainable development goals.
31 Projects from twenty countries were evaluated, being Metrotenerife the only European initiative that reached the final. Among the assessed aspects, Metrotenerife stands out as a public transport system that has improved the mobility of the population, reduced the use of private transport and therefore, the emission of polluting gases. Furthermore, it has created an important number of jobs. This project provides a sustainable and safe transport mode accessible for all citizens.
The jury’s decision was announced during the V International Forum of Public-Private Associations, held in Switzerland last April.
