Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania and the second largest city in the Baltic states joined EBRD Green Cities in 2023. Vilnius has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its well-preserved architectural heritage. 



The first city in the Baltics to become part of the EBRD green Cities network, Vilnius has committed to developing a Green City Action Plan (GCAP) as part of a transition towards a greener future across all urban sectors. The GCAP will introduce a systematic approach to identify, prioritise and address the city’s most pressing environmental challenges.
