Freiburg: Green, but not naive.
Every aspect of sustainability is written large in the city that is considered Germany's most environmentally friendly major city and, indeed, the perfect model for a "green city". So energy + the environment are obvious strengths – but medicine + healthcare, chemicals + pharmaceuticals and technology + innovation are also sectors in which the city excels.
