Bristol-logo-transpBy the end of this decade the world’s leading cities will be using smart technologies to help deliver a cleaner environment, a higher quality of life and a vibrant economy. Bristol aims to be in the top 20 European cities by 2020 and has made a clear commitment to create a world-class and inclusive Smart City. Bristol City Council has been very active in this area and has established “Smart City Bristol” as a collaborative programme between the public sector, business and community. The aim is to use smart technologies to meet our ambitious target to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2020 from a 2005 baseline, as well as our social and economic objectives. It was launched in 2011 and builds upon the Smart City Bristol Report20 commissioned by Bristol City Council and funded by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change.

To provide the services and satisfy the needs for a community of this size, The Municipality employs almost 500 people, structured in various Offices and Departments that cover most of the cultural, social, technical and administrative requirements of the community.
