  • Notable distinction: Nice crowned as the greenest city in France among cities with over 200,000 inhabitants by the KERMAP ranking, highlighting its commitment to urban biodiversity.

Targeted and Recognized Greening

The “One Tree per Resident” program, with an investment of 447,000 euros, is not only an example of action against global warming; it also revives the historical concept of the “garden city.” The integration of 111,122 new trees enriches Nice’s green heritage (35,000 trees in the city and 30,000 in parks and forested areas), offering tangible ecological benefits such as improved air quality and thermal regulation. This initiative has contributed to placing Nice at the top of the KERMAP green cities ranking, highlighting its excellence in the distribution and management of its tree heritage.

The program is confirmed from 2023 to 2026 for 1,130,000 €.

The Zero Plastic Horizon

In addition to these reforestation efforts, Nice’s “Horizon Zero Plastic” strategy aims to combat plastic pollution through a six-axis approach, including reducing plastic use, improving recycling, awareness-raising actions, preserving water resources, and preventing plastic waste. This approach, which highlights the city’s commitment to protecting the health of its residents while preserving the environment, sets an example for sustainable waste management.

A Model City

Nice’s recognition as the greenest city in France by the KERMAP ranking, as well as its receipt of the National Tree Prize in 2023, testify to the positive impact and reach of its environmental actions. These distinctions strengthen Nice’s position as a leader in the field of sustainable urban development.
