Kolding Municipality is situated in the Triangle Area of Denmark, which is characterized as an area with much potential and growth. In order to meet all the possibilities the municipalitiy entails, a green and sustainable development is in focus. Kolding strives to be a pioneer municipality, as we were one of the first municipalities to initiate a strategic effort to reduce the consumption of electricity, water and heat in our own buildings. This kind of initiative is one we hope to keep, due to one of our leading positions within a sustainable city development.
