On 28 January 2013, in occasion of its second training, the NiCE (Networking intelligent Cities for Energy Efficiency) project has launched the Green Digital Toolkit to all cities. 

The Toolkit is an online platform designed to provide cities with a central resource for city-level actions towards the Green Digital Charter. It indeed enables cities to browse and share activities information and tools, exchange with each other, monitor the status in the Charter implementation and compare it with against the Covenant of Mayors reporting procedures.

Originally conceived for Green Digital Charter cities only, the Toolkit is nevertheless accessible from everyone: future signatory cities, relevant stakeholders and single citizens. It is indeed separated into public areas and private ones, to which the Charter signatories only have access. While everyone can browse the list and access the reporting and access tools, signatory cities can access additional features:

  • sharing details of green and digital tools and activities from their own city;
  • rate, comment and collect the tools uploaded by other cities;
  • review and monitor their activities in relation to the Green Digital Charter and the Covenant of Mayors;
  • post related questions and requests and exchange with other signatories.

Signatory cities can ask for their login details by sending an email to: info@greendigitalcharter.eu.


Recent tools posted by cities include a mobile phone app for travelling on public transport (Linkoping), advice on state aid issues relating to broadband rollout (Manchester) and home energy management systems (Warsaw).


The toolkit is available through the Green Digital Charter and NiCE project portal: www.greendigitalcharter.eu/toolkit
