What is the SUMP Award?

The European Commission's award for sustainable urban mobility planning was launched in 2012, and has been presented five times. The aim of the award scheme is to encourage the adoption of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe and to reward outstanding achievements in each year’s thematic priority area. 

The SUMP Award is presented alongside the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award. Nonetheless, each award has separate objectives, whilst remaining complementary. The EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award is given to municipalities or regions for their outstanding activities during the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK on 16-22 September, whereas the SUMP Award recognizes local and regional authorities for excellence in sustainable urban mobility planning.
