Genk is going all-out to guarantee its citizens and visitors a healthy environment and quality way of life. For example, with the involvement of its residents in sustainable projects, the city is striving to achieve carbon neutrality with net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
The city of Genk also operates a sustainable mobility plan. This is not an anti-car policy, but a policy based on the STOP principle: priority for pedestrians (‘Stappers’), cyclists (‘Trappers’) and collective transport (‘Openbaar Vervoer). Only then comes the private car (‘Privé-vervoer’). This is all part of Genk’s approach to making the city safer and even more liveable and accessible.
