As the 2/3 of greenhouses as emissions are due to buildings and / or mobility, Nantes is working hard on this direction, focusing mainly on mobility building  a public transportation network around the suburbs and the city.Also since October 1st 2012, Nantes city center became a 30km/h speed limited zone, encouraging the use of public transportation and bikes as well as the use of pedestrians.
