Implementation Framework for Carbon Neutral Urban Development for a High Quality of Life
The association brings Swiss know-how based on 2000-Watt Philosophy to foster carbon neutral smart urban environments internationally.
2000-Watt Smart Cities concept provides an implementation framework consisting of both quantitative and qualitative assessment of urban development.
The association is strengthened through collaboration with its partners and members to meet its strategic, technical and financial objectives
The association seeks cooperation with cities, states and countries that are willing to go the extra mile to achieve carbon neutrality.
The Glasgow Climate Pact represents a vital step in our shared efforts to keep global warming to 1.5°C and implement the Paris Agreement and will be welcomed by the business community. The Pact and recent pledges keep 1.5°C alive, just. BUT to get 1.5°C out of intensive care we must fast track implementation of all pledges and national plans. President 2000-WSCA presented on how to achieve the goals and way forward through in his talk.Read More

The Symbiosis International University in Pune oversees a campus with eight faculties and over 20,000
students. The University is already pursuing sustainability goals in the areas of food services,
solar energy, and mobility, with plans to expand the existing facilities. An overall energy concept
for the university’s sites remains open.
Based on the successful Swiss approach for the 2000W sites, the criteria catalogue for the 2000W sites’ certification will be adapted to the Indian context as a first step. In a second step, the entire process will be implemented for the Symbiosis University campus; from recording the status quo to analyses, the development of a master plan for energy, building design, construction methods, mobility, food, waste management, etc. The project’s main goal is the first successful certification of an area as a 2000W Smart City in India, followed by the establishment and multiplication of new 2000-Watt Smart Townships in Pune and throughout India.
